Sometimes life can be so overwhelming that we just want it to end. That was the case for a young 23-year-old Portuguese woman who found herself on a gantry on the very busy IC19.
What seemed like a scene from a movie, people witnessed the woman climbing the gantry in Alfragide. Police were soon called to the scene.
“She sat on the structure and put her legs between the railings, indicating that she was about to throw herself off,” read a police statement.
A brave police officer by the name of Jorge Moreira had the daunting task of trying to convince the woman to come back to safety.
While the woman has undergone psychological treatment, officer Moreira has been hailed a hero.
