The Tulsa Police Department released video Friday of a rescue made by four men who stopped a woman from jumping off the 71st Street bridge into the Arkansas River. 

TPD captured the rescue from its helicopter camera. 

The rescue happened Tuesday after a cyclist first reached through the bridge railing to hold onto the woman but soon was struggling to hold onto her, another rescuer said.

Clint Baird stopped to help the cyclist hold onto the woman, who appears to kick and try to escape their grasp in the video. 

The two men were assisted shortly afterward by a man named Alex Jayne who jumped over the fence onto the small ledge where the woman was standing.

Another man also stopped to help, and together, the four men pulled the woman back over the fence to safety.
