On Thursday, the NYPD released bodycam footage of officers engaging with a suicidal man in West Harlem. The intense conversation between the officers and the man lasted for nearly 40 minutes before ESU officers arrived on the scene to rescue him.
Officer Carl Fayette empathized with the difficult situation and assured that there are solutions available. As a member of NYPD, he emphasized the abundance of resources at their disposal and promised to use every possible means to provide assistance. He shared this during a three-minute recap of the rescue and made a heartfelt promise to help in any way possible.
Police Officers frequently interact with people having the worst day of their lives. 2 weeks ago, Officers Fayette & Mata talked to a distraught man in crisis for nearly 40 minutes until ESU officers rescued him.
