Turkish President Stops Convoy To Talk Man Out Of Suicide (Photos)

The Turkish president appeared to prevent a suicide on Christmas Day after he was filmed persuading a man to get back from the edge of a bridge.  The unnamed man was thought to be preparing to jump when Recep Erdogan's motorcade was passing over the 211ft-tall structure, which links Europe with Asia, after Friday prayers.
Footage showed Erdogan's bodyguards bringing the sobbing man, who appeared to be in his early 30s, to talk to the President through the window of his car.
After a few moments, the man could then be seen kissing Erdogan's hand before being escorted to safety. Police had allegedly been trying for almost two hours to talk the man out of committing suicide, but he refused.

He was said to have abandoned his car on the bridge and climbed over the side railing due to long-standing depression. More photos below…
