    Quite an emotional story, made me think how you never think that someone that 'just checks tickets' would end up potentially saving a life!

    Hopefully the poor soul can now begin to turn his life around although it will take a lot of help and support. Always nice to read a good news story!

    What a wonderful act of humanity. It couldn't have been easy to approach someone in such a state of distress, let alone pull them away from the edge and talk them down.

    Nice that the employee in question wasn't sacked for a change. <(

    Well done Karl, what a wonderful thing to do. Hopefully the poor man can start to turn his life around. :D
