Bus driver’s inspiring act

Bus driver’s inspiring act

A bus driver in Londonderry who helped save a man’s life wants more people to be aware of the distress of others.

Ronan Ward was on his way to Dublin when he spotted a man trying to climb the railings onto a bridge in Strabane, County Tyrone. He immediately stopped the bus and went to try to encourage the man down. Ronan told local journalists that the man was in a bad state mentally, and had said he was feeling very depressed. Along with two other people, Ronan successfully talked him down and received a round of applause from his passengers when he finally got back on board his bus. One passenger even tweeted the bus company, Translink, to alert them to their driver’s amazing act. Ronan was reported by BBC Northern Ireland as saying: “It’s quite nice to feel appreciated by most of all it’s about making people more aware”.
