ROUND ROCK, Texas A young woman attempting suicide is alive Thursday night because of the compassion of a complete stranger.
A young man who stopped to help her is now being called a hero.
According to police, the 21-year-old criminal justice student Blake Pryor noticed the young woman perched on the ledge of a highway flyover and pulled over to see if she needed help.
He quickly realized she planned to jump into the traffic 100 feet below.
She did make a motion to jump, said Pryor. I just grabbed her and I gave her a hug and I told her it s not worth it.
Other officers were impressed with his story. Since it went public, Pryor said police departments from around the state have contacted him with job offers.
