Turkish president 'talks man out of jumping off bridge' in Istanbul

Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s motorcade stops on Bosphorus bridge where man was apparently contemplating jumping off

Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s office says the Turkish president has talked a man out of jumping off a bridge.
Television footage on Friday showed Erdogan’s motorcade stopping on Istanbul’s Bosphorus bridge, where a man was apparently contemplating jumping off. In the footage, Erdogan’s aides are heard telling the man that the president wants to speak to him, then seen escorting him to Erdogan’s car. The president does not leave his vehicle but the man leans in and the two are seen talking.

An official from Erdogan’s office told the Associated Press the man was depressed because of family issues. Erdogan promised to help, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity in line with government regulations.
