Didn't want him

When a sergeant pulled Rowy Bryant off the edge of the bridge, ending his attempt to jump, the 39-year-old man began to cry.

He would have jumped, he said, and fallen from the interstate overpass to the traffic on Interstate 675, but the Clayton County Police sergeant, 13-year veteran, Anthony Thuman, pulled him back at the last moment.

"He thanked me for saving him," Thuman said. "He said he didn't know what was in his head, to make him want to jump off a bridge. He just needed his medicine, because he was depressed."

Police said Bryant, an unemployed Oregon man, hitchhiked from the Northwest to Georgia to be with his fiancé, but when he got here, his fiancé didn't want him.
