DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - Dallas Police have posted a video to YouTube that shows two police officers rescuing a man from a bridge overpass.

The dashcam video, taken on the afternoon of June 12, shows the man sitting on the side of a bridge overpass at West Northwest Highway and Harry Hines Boulevard.

When DPD Officers Brad Uptmore and Matthew Parson responded to the scene, they blocked off traffic and began to talk to the man, who made several threats to jump from the bridge.

As the man talked to officers, he also pulled out a knife and used it to violently cut pieces of bailing twine, according to police. He was distraught over his recent drug use, after being sober for more than six months.

The officers continued to talk to the man, and when he dropped the knife officers moved closer to the man. When they were close enough, they grabbed him and pulled him over the rails and to the ground.

The man was taken into custody and taken to a hospital for evaluation.
