Deputies, good Samaritans help save man dangling from I-45 overpass

Deputies and a group of good Samaritans worked together to save a man dangling from an overpass in north Harris County on Sunday.

The scene unfolded at an I-45 North overpass near Richey Road around 11:30 a.m. Video shot by David Garcia Lovett at the scene shows a group of good Samaritans gathered underneath the overpass as a man dangled from the concrete guardrail. Deputies on top of the overpass were able to pull the man up.

Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez identified the deputies that helped save the man as Deputy Cruz and Deputy Leal. Sheriff Gonzalez says Deputy Leal sustained a minor injury but it okay.

It is unclear how the man came to be dangling from the overpass. We are reaching out to authorities for more details.
