Emmerdale star Danny Miller reportedly stepped in to save the life of a man contemplating jumping from a bridge in Manchester.
The actor, who plays Aaron Dingle, is believed to have noticed the man in distress and physically pulled him down.
After offering him someone to talk to and sharing his own experiences with mental health, Danny was eventually able to get him to safety.
It's alleged the unknown male, who had previously worked in the Army, was then taken to hospital.
“The man was in serious distress and Danny went over and chatted to him. As they talked about their experience there was a clear bond,” asource told Metro.co.uk.
“The young man eventually stepped back and they shared a hug," they continued. "They exchanged numbers and Danny told him to contact him whenever he needed him.”
OK! has contacted Danny’s reps for further comment and clarification.
The alleged incident occurred a year after Danny opened up about his own mental health and how lockdown caused him to struggle.
In a long statement about appreciating his home life with his now-fiancee Steph Jones, Danny celebrated his other half for keeping his spirits up.
“This girl has shared and carried some of the lowest points of my life over the last few months,” he wrote as part of the message on Instagram.
“A bloody good partner, daughter, sister, auntie but most importantly a true friend. A light at the end of a very dark tunnel for me.”
“Anxiety and depression grabs you and shakes you no matter who you are or what walk of life,” he later said. “And I hope you read this post (and yes you may cringe) and see the bigger picture. Talk to someone.
“And allow someone to love you and love them in return. And then, like me, hopefully, you too can see a genuine path to welcoming and dealing with the horrible, invisible illness that is #anxiety and #depression.
“I hope you find that partner and that friend. Like me. And if you’re still reading this.. You’re doing great and I’m glad you exist”.
