Look at this amazing display, all to save the life of a suicidal man.

Michigan State Police tweeted the image of 13 semi-trucks lined up under a highway overpass early Tuesday morning.

FOX 2 Detroit reports that at around 1 a.m., a man started threatening to jump from a bridge onto I-696.

Police closed the road down and semi-trucks arrived, parking under the overpass to shorten the fall if the man would jump.

Multiple departments were on-hand and were able to talk the man off the overpass. He was taken to the hospital for evaluations.

The freeway re-opened at around 4 a.m. 

Michigan State Police want to remind everyone that help is available through the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.
