Tractor Trailers Line Up On Florida's Turnpike To Help Man In Distress

Florida Highway Patrol officials say a portion of the Florida Turnpike in Orlando was shut down Tuesday afternoon as a man threatened to jump off an overpass.

FHP shared a photo to Twitter, showing multiple tractor-trailers lined up under the road in an effort to protect the man FHP said was “in distress.”


If the man jumped or lost his footing, the trucks would lessen the distance of his fall.

FHP said the man came down from the bridge on his own after about an hour.
