JANESVILLE – Police have now released a video of an officer preventing a possible suicide attempt earlier this month. Officers responded to reports of a woman seen standing on the ledge of a three-story building.

A police officer on the ground spoke to the woman while a second officer went to the roof. He quietly approached the woman from behind and pulled her away from the ledge.

The woman was taken to a local suicide crisis center where she will be treated and evaluated.

The video has been posted on YouTube. You can watch the full video here.
