A quick response to save a woman's life. Tulsa Police, EMSA and Tulsa firefighters were called out when a woman threatened to jump off the Denver overpass onto the Broken Arrow Expressway Tuesday evening.

Fire trucks and Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers re-routed eastbound traffic on the Broken Arrow Expressway, while police officers tried to talk the woman down. A group of police officers snuck up behind the woman, quickly wrapped their arms around her and pulled her to safety.

The unidentified woman was taken to a Tulsa hospital for a mental health evaluation.
