COLUMBUS (WCMH) — Body cam footage has been released that shows Columbus police officers saving a suicidal girl.
According to the Columbus Division of Police, at about 8:19 am, March 20, officers Kropp, Salsgiver, Sebatiano and probationary officer Townsley were called to the Greenlawn Bridge on the report of a possible suicidal teenager.
Police say the distraught 17-year-old girl was threatening to jump from the bridge and into the Scioto River.
