After Friday prayers, Recep Erdogan’s motorcade was passing through the bridge when he saw the man. He filmed persuading the man to get back from the edge of the bridge. His bodyguards later brought the
sobbing man to talk to the President through the window of his car. Moments later, he could be seen kissing Erdogan’s hand before being escorted to safety. Police had allegedly been trying for almost two hours to talk him out of committing suicide. He was said to have abandoned his car on the bridge and climbed over the side railing due to long-standing depression.
