(Meredith) – Newly-released body camera video shows officers in Tennessee clinging onto a man who jumped off a bridge.
The officers who saved the man in April are now being recognized for their quick actions.
Knox County Deputy Brian Rehg and Knoxville Police Lieutenant Chris McCarter both said they were at the right place at the right time.
Rehg, a 13-year police veteran, said he is used to being called to a scene after something tragic has already happened, but he’s not used to a situation where he saves someone from jumping.
“After 13 years of service and seeing all kinds of things, to actually save somebody like that… it feels good,” Rehg told WATE.
