This is the moment a police officer jumped eight feet into a freezing, fast-flowing river to save a man from drowning.
PC Mohammed Nadeem's body camera captured the moment he plunged into the River Irwell to reach a distressed man who had fallen from Hardy's Gate bridge in Bury:
Officers had been called to the scene over concern for the man’s welfare on Saturday afternoon.
PC Nadeem, who is a student officer, managed to grab the man and drag him to safety.The pair were helped out of the water by fire crews, before the man was treated by paramedics and taken to hospital to receive treatment.
Superintendent Rick Jackson of GMP ’s Bury Borough, said: “As with any incident that we respond to, the safety of the public is our number one priority and sometimes that means putting them first, ahead of your own safety".
The man is now safe and receiving the treatment he needs.
