RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - It’s a long way down from the 8th floor of the parking garage by the Bank of America Center on East Cary Street, but that was nearly one woman’s last resort this past Tuesday.
Luckily, tragedy was averted thanks to Richmond Police officers, Tavon Morris and William Burnett.
They say they got a call of a woman dangling off a ledge of the deck; Officer Morris arrived first to assist the garage security personnel already trying to hold on to the woman.
”She was already on the opposite side [of the ledge], just ready to fall back. She was just going through it with her personal life, and that point, she was at her breaking point where she didn’t want to live anymore,” said Officer Morris.
