NOW: Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Deputies rescue suicidal man from Hoan Bridge

Quick thinking deputies are now credited with saving a man who was considering taking his own life.

Video captured Milwaukee County Sheriff's Deputies carefully talking a man down from jumping off the Hoan Bridge on Monday.

After he was safely down, deputies took him to the hospital for treatment. 

Acting Sheriff Richard Schmidt released a statement, "The public does not always hear about the lifesaving actions of our deputies. I'm proud of the selfless work these deputies performed to help save the lives of other people in distress without regard to the danger they themselves face."
