Akron PD: Officer Saves Man’s Life on High Level Bridge

AKRON, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – A 24-year-old man will likely someday thank an Akron police officer who saved his life last week.

The despondent man was threatening to jump from the Route 8 High Level Bridge over the Cuyahoga River when he let go of the rail he was holding on to.

That’s when Officer Kyle Cunningham grabbed a hold of the man, bringing him to safety.

The man was being checked out at the hospital.
