Dale Robert Leonardo prevented Jessie Santos from leaping off the bridge’s rail, holding on to him until the man’s relatives arrived. ADVERTISEMENTLeonardo, 32, was manning a post at Barangay Marisol in Angeles when a motorist alerted him of the suicide try. He was already sitting on the rail so I grabbed him by his shorts,” the policeman told the Inquirer by phone. A student posted videos and photographs of the incident on social media, inspiring acts of kindness for Santos and praises for Leonardo. Without citing Santos for any violation, Leonardo sent him instead to Rafael Lazatin Medical Center in Angeles because he was trembling.
