'Hero' bus driver stops to save man's life on way to Dublin
A Translink driver has been praised after he stopped his bus to talk a man down off a bridge in County Tyrone.
The bus driver was applauded by his passengers when he returned "shaking" after saving the man's life.
It happened on the 7am bus from Derry to Dublin on Saturday January 7.
One of the passengers tweeted about what happened.
He said: "Translink, you should know your driver just saved a life by talking a man off bridge in Strabane. Hero. He got back on the bus shaking to finish the job.
"The whole bus applauded him after he apologised to us for holding us up. No-one cared we are in safe hands, man deserves an award.
"The man is safe and the driver is back on the road with us. He said he couldn't pass him. We agree #hero."
A Translink spokesman thanked the passenger for alerting them.
"Well done that driver, hero indeed. Thanks for making us aware."
