Massachuets State Trooper and K-9 save man who attempted suicide

Massachusetts stop suicide

 

A Massachusetts State Trooper and his K-9 helped to save a man who had been attempting to commit suicide on Saturday afternoon.  State Police say the man – whose identity has not been released – had called 911 in a state of distress and told the operator he was going to kill himself. Police subsequently ascertained that the man was in Myles Standish State Forest, and Troopers from the Bourne State Police barracks, as well as the Air Wing, Plymouth Police, and a number of other agencies were deployed to look for him.  A State Trooper and his K-9 proceeded to track into the forest from the man's last known location, and within a short period of time they had found him hanging from a tree, police said.  The man was quickly cut down and EMS personnel transported him to a nearby hospital.  Police say the man is expected to survive, and called it a reminder that "a quick response can mean the difference between life and death."  No further information has been released at this time.
