This is the dramatic moment four police officers clung on to a suicidal man who had attempted to jump from a bridge onto a busy motorway.

Ohio cops Ryan Erney and Scott Wright were called out to break up a fight between two men in Columbus, but ended up saving a life.

When they arrived at the scene, officer Erney was flagged down by the caller who pointed out the man who had allegedly started the fight.

The cops were speaking to the suspect when he suddenly reached into his waistband and shouted“kill me!”.

The suspect was found to have warrants out for his arrest, including failure to register as a sex offender and probation violation and was taken into custody.

Posting the footage on Facebook, a Columbus Division of Police spokesman, wrote: "Patrol personnel are the first responders of the Division who serve and protect hundreds of thousands of people each day.

"Responding to citizens’ calls for service around the clock requires professionalism, dedication and perseverance.

"These officers demonstrated these traits and what it truly means to serve and protect. That's why these officers are today’s pride of CPD."

Footage of the rescue on Saturday, September 30, was posted online where many people applauded the officers for their bravery.

One viewer said: "Another tremendous and positive act."

Another added: "What a fantastic officer!"
