Hanging from a bridge over Acceso Tigre was a completely desperate man, who later stated that he no longer wanted to live, that he had many debts that he could not pay and he did not have a job either. One of the people who passed by with the car was Zaira Narawho did not hesitate to immediately call 911 and give notice of what was happening.
As reported, at 11:47 p.m. on Tuesday, the 911 central received a call from Nara -who was returning from a birthday party with a friend- where she reported the incident, for which reason there were four patrolmen from the 11th police station in San Isidro who They headed to the area. Meanwhile, the model and driver approached the place along with her friend, at which time two other young people joined, and the four of them stood firm there, with the intention of convincing the man to give up the decision her.
Speaking to us in the morning (El Trece), Zaira explained that “there was not a soul in the area and I see the image of a boy walking towards the center of the bridge” but on the side that is between the protection bars and the void. “I was the first to see it and my friend Tania told her ‘turn around’, because she was driving, we turned at the roundabout and we noticed that she was intentionally there”.
“I called 911 for the first time in my life and a girl answered me, I explained the situation and she told me that she already sent a cell phone. She could not leave because she did not know what could happen ”. It was at that moment that the two boys who were walking in the area and with the arrival of the police tried to make him reason. Understanding that they couldn’t, the model and her friend, who was still in the car, decide to get out.
Hanging by one leg and one arm on the fence located on the Tomkinson Avenue bridge in Boulogne, the man detailed each of his sufferings, even explaining that he even had to take a bus to get there because he is not from area. The women began to ask him about his family, his environment, seeking to achieve a break in their attempt to end his life. Until a halo of hope arrived.
“I hesitated to go down because I felt that it was not nonsense and that I could hinder the police,” he continued his story. My friend looked at him fixedly and said ‘look, Gonzalo, if you jump out of here you’re going to hurt yourself, surely you’re going to hurt the people who pass by with the car, but you’re not going to kill yourself’. He always looked down with his face covered and when Tania tells him that, he raises his face and sees me”.
The man stopped for two seconds: “Are you Zaira Nara?” There she asks him to please continue the talk about the bridge, although he still resisted. “I have debts, life has no meaning for me,” explained the man, who was still hanging by one hand and one foot. There Zaira stood firm again: “You are going to fall, you are going to hurt yourself and you are not going to really fulfill your mission and perhaps you are going to kill a family, let’s go there. And I was accompanying him and he came out and did not jump. He will need psychological support to get out of the situation, ”concluded the driver.
