A man who decided he wanted to take his own life by jumping off a bridge changed his mind but then accidentally fell to his death as he tried to climb back to safety.
The incident was caught on camera at the Crimean Bridge in the Russian capital of Moscow.
The clips shows the unnamed 22-year-old attempting to make his way down from the structure with a rescuer in front of him after having been persuaded to change his mind about his suicide attempt .
One eyewitness told local media: “A bystander put his own life at risk and decided to climb up and talk the guy down, and he managed to persuade him to follow him back down to the ground.”
But the man lost his balance on the high bridge before falling forward and hitting the concrete below.
