The pregnant woman suffers from depression after being abandoned by her lover 🙁

The quick action by e-hailing riders and two Trans Jakarta officers managed to save the life of a suicidal woman from jumping off a footbridge in East Jakarta, Indonesia last Thursday (28 January 2021). As reported by Indonesian news portal Solopos, the incident happened at 10.30am at the footbridge above a busy road in Halte Gelanggang Remaja in the Republic’s capital.

One Trans Jakarta officer named Kurniatul noticed that the woman was about to jump onto the traffic below via CCTV and quickly contacted his colleagues at the scene, Lutfi and Fina. The latter rushed to the woman and was assisted by a group of Grab and Gojek riders who were nearby.

A video of the incident was recorded by a passerby and subsequently went viral on social media. You can view the video below:

From the video, you can see that Fina, Lutfi and an unnamed Gojek rider were holding on to the woman while a group of Grab and Gojek riders stopped traffic and gathered in a circle in case the woman managed to break free and jump. Thankfully, both men holding on to the woman managed to grab her up to safety.

Fina and Lutfi then did their best to calm the woman down and give her water to drink. They finally managed to convince the woman to not go through with her plans to commit suicide.

It was then revealed that the woman was suffering from depression after her lover abandoned her even though she was 5 months pregnant. She was then handed over to the authorities and was admitted to Dinas Sosial for psychiatric help.
