Talk about perfect timing! A bus driver who was on his usual route in Nanjing, China chanced upon a suicidal woman who wanted to jump off the Yangtze River Bridge earlier this week.

The unidentified woman, who, according to reports is at least 30 years of age, already had one leg up over the bridge’s barrier when Bian Peng, the driver, saw the woman.

Peng immediately stopped the vehicle and jumped out of the bus to rescue the woman.
