Woman's Message of Love Saves Man From Certain Death
Nicole Oyola, a 23-year-old from Clearwater, told Fox 13 that she suddenly pulled to the side of the Howard-Franklin Bridge outside of Tampa on Thursday when she spotted a man on its edge.
“I started talking to him. I told him, ‘You're worth it. You're enough,'” Oyola said. “'I don't know what you're going through, but I love you and God loves you and everything is going to be okay.’”
Oyola added that the man appeared to be in his early 20s and that she initially thought he had stopped on the bridge because he was having car trouble.
The station reported that the man is now receiving counseling. Oyola said she called the police and an officer who arrived prayed with the man before taking him off the bridge.
"God has a purpose for everyone," she said, adding that if the roles were reversed she would've wanted someone to have stopped for her.
