A man in Charleston, S.C. who was about to jump off the Ravenel Bridge into the Cooper River decided not to kill himself after police brought him a pizza.
Calls started rolling into the police station when passing motorists worried the parked car would cause a wreck. Others noticed that the man had jumped over the barrier of the bridge, causing them to worry he would jump.
Police soon showed up and talked to the man. They waited long enough with him that he started getting hungry and thirsty.
They said they would get him a pizza if he came down. He apparently agreed, and when they came back with a pizza and water, he gave up his suicide attempt and was taken into custody.
Officers went to Andolini's nearby to get that lifesaving pizza. They have not revealed the man's name or age, and are also not confirming that it was the pizza that changed his mind about life.
Fans of Andolini's say the pizza was without a doubt what convinced him to live. General manager A.J. Castle said he gave the pizza to the officers for free once he found out what they were doing.
"I figured he [the officer] was doing a good deed, I might as well do him a good deed as well," Castle said.
"I've been here for nine years and nothing like this has ever happened. But I'm not going to take credit for what happened. I was just doing my job."
