Borough honours man’s rescuer

A man who narrowly succeeded in stopping a would-be suicide from jumping into the Decarie trench was honoured by CDN-NDG borough this week for his act.

We don’t hear anything about suicides into the sunken highway, but there must be some. My mother talked another woman off the edge years ago, when we were living on the Decarie service road. She noticed the woman standing on the overpass looking down into it, and after awhile she went out, talked to her, and walked her away from the edge.
