In Springfield, Missouri, police were called after a man was spotted standing on the edge of a roof. But when officers arrived, they found the man already had a support system on the ground. It all started on a Monday afternoon. Concerned citizens saw the man perched on the edge of a three-story building. No one knew why he had climbed to the roof and was standing there, but he appeared troubled. Judging from his frantic pacing, bystanders knew something was wrong. After the cops were called, a group of strangers gathered closer to the building. None of them knew the man, but the group still treated him as a loved one. They created signs with messages of support, holding them up for him to see. They sang to him, and they did not leave the area for as long as the man stayed up there. Police estimated that lasted for about 15 hours. Finally, they were able to get the man down safely and take him to the hospital.
