Davey Boy Smith, Jr. is being hailed as a hero after saving a woman from killing herself over the weekend. Smith said in a Facebook post that he was driving along down a road in Calgary when he saw a girl crying and hanging off a bridge and someone trying to talk to her. The woman threatened to jump if he got closer but Smith did not take any chances and decided to grab her and pulled up.

Smith told her, "Miss your not going to move unless I want you to, I’m an expert grappler and you're not going to shoot me. We will get you help life is a precious thing and I’m here to help to help you."

WOW. ??? what a day. First off LIFE is a precious thing. I saved a life today and I am grateful I was able to do so. ? When driving up 16th Avenue past bowness road in Calgary I saw a girl crying and hanging off the bridge with someone trying to talk to her. ?I stopped and jumped the barricade and tried talking to the girl. And she was crying and an emotional mess and threatening to jump if I got closer. With people on the ground waving her not to jump I decided to grab a hold of her and not take any chances. She started to slide and want to go more as I grabbed a hold her. Luckily my years of grappling and self defense I knew how to grab her HARD and how to pull her up from hanging off and jumping. She wasn’t exactly
small either ?I knew not to grab her clothing because she would have ripped though it.. When I yanked her off the bridge finally, I established the mount position as you do in Grappling and did not let her budge. She also said she had a gun too ??. She was crying and said she just wanted a hug. But as much as I wanted to hug her I told her I couldn’t hug her because she said she had a gun. And then she squirmed and demanded I get off her. I told her “Miss your not going to move unless I want you to, I’m an expert grappler and your not going to shoot me. We will get you help life is a precious thing and I’m here to help to help you.”

I held her until the police came and the police thanked me for my help. They cuffed her and have her under arrest to get the help which she greatly needs. It a very scary site off the bridge but I’m really glad I saved a life. Life is a precious thing folks. Never take it for granted. I’m glad I was at service to help somebody today and my years of grappling came into play. I really believe if I wasn’t there and been able to grab her she would have jumped. It would have taken a few people at least to pull her off ???
