He went on, “With people on the ground waving her not to jump I decided to grab a hold of her and not take any chances. She started to slide and want to go more as I grabbed a hold her.”

Davey’s strong wrestling moves came in handy as he had to use some real muscle to get her off the bridge. “Luckily, with my years of grappling and self defense, I knew how to grab her HARD and how to pull her up from hanging off and jumping,” he recalled.

So scary! The woman had a gun on her, too. “I told her ‘Miss, you're not going to move unless I want you to, I’m an expert grappler and you’re not going to shoot me,” he continued.
