Friday, December 25, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, returning after the prayer, he prevented the suicide on the bridge over the Bosphorus, Turkish media reported.
The man was going to jump off a bridge and commit suicide. Police two hours tried to persuade him not to do it, but he refused to listen to them.
When stopped near the President’s motorcade, EN route from the Asian to the European side of Istanbul, the man agreed to come and talk to Erdogan.
During the conversation, Erdogan, holding a mobile phone to his ear, was able to convince him not to commit suicide. The man kissed his hand and left.
According to Today’s Zaman, he wanted to commit suicide because of the turmoil in the family.
