November 26, 2014, the day before Thanksgiving, Dallas 911 received a call from a man threatening to jump from the Martin Luther King Boulevard overpass onto S.M. Wright Freeway.

Daniel Mulvihill was the first cop to show up and tried to talk the man down. Additional officers, including the epically named Sergeant Bronc McCoy arrived to provide backup after Mulvihill called in his location. McCoy distracted the potential jumper just long enough for Mulvihill to arm tackle the man over the bridge railing.

Both Mulvihill and McCoy have been nominated for DPD's life-saving bar.
