A 19-year-old man from Puebla, Mexico was found at the top of a bridge about to jump into moving traffic after hearing his boyfriend was being abused by his parents.

Emergency services found the unnamed man before he could jump on March 23, according to Gay Star News. They explained that the man attempted suicide after receiving a message from his boyfriend, telling him that after talking to his parents about his sexuality, they beat him.
