An Aberdeen Police Officer is credited with saving the life of a 23 year old Southern Pines man who was reported to be attempting to jump from a bridge with a rope around his neck Saturday afternoon.

Emergency responders were called to a bridge that crosses over the railroad tracks on Saunders Boulevard off of US Highway 1 just minutes after 3:00 pm.

According to Aberdeen police officials the first responding officers found a man sitting on the edge of the bridge with his legs dangling over the edge and a rope tied around his neck on one end with the other end attached to the bridge.

Aberdeen Patrol Officer Cody Vaughn approached the man on foot to attempt to establish contact with him. As the officer approached, the young man is reported to have stated “it is too late” insinuating he was preparing to jump at which time Officer Vaughn grabbed the man around the waist and pulled him off of the bridges concrete rail down to the roadway.

The man was evaluated by Moore County EMS paramedics before officers with Aberdeen Police Department transported him for an involuntary commitment proceeding.

The man reportedly told law enforcement he had consumed a large amount of drugs this morning including prescription pills and cocaine.

Responding to this incident were units with Aberdeen Fire & Rescue, Moore County EMS, and the Aberdeen Police Department.
