BENISSA Local Police have saved a suicidal woman’s life.

Officers rushed to stop the 60-something year old woman from taking her own life after receiving a call putting out the alert that she was hanging on to a railing at her home four storeys up and intended to jump.

The two officers managed to break open the front door using a gas canister they found on the landing, then grab her and prevent the suicide attempt, keeping a good hold of her and trying to calm her down until the health services arrived.
