Social media photos are showing the team effort to save a suicidal man on I-696 Tuesday morning.

Michigan State Police lined up semi trucks under the Coolidge overpass as the man hung off the side of the safety fence. 

MSP issued their own statements on the situation on Twitter saying:

This photo does show the work troopers and local officers do to serve the public. But also in that photo is a man struggling with the decision to take his own life. Please remember help is available through the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.

You can also call a loved one, member of the clergy or 911. There are so many people that can help you make the choice to get help and live! It is our hope to never see another photo like this again.

The man was taken to the hospital for observation.
