Dashcam captured the dramatic minutes leading up to the life-saving grab Riverside police officers made Monday night when they found a man threatening to leap off the Interstate 635 bridge into the Missouri River. Officers can be heard trying to talk the man off the wall off the bridge. When that failed, they grabbed the man just as he attempted the deadly leap. An officer consoles the man afterwards, asking him what was wrong. The video was edited by The Kansas City Star for length.
