A California Highway Patrol officer on routine patrol on December 27 spotted a suicidal man walking on a metal guardrail on a Highway 101 over Milpas Street and was able to talk him down, according to authorities.

The Oxnard man, who had cut his wrists and was bleeding, was walking heel to toe with his arms extended for balance when he was contacted by Officer Dan Ralph who convinced the man to come down off the guardrail.

After temporarily being placed in handcuffs, the man was taken to Cottage Hospital for medical treatment.

Good job by the officer. NO need for an ugly fence.

Good Job to the officer , too bad the person had to go to Cottage Hosp . They might do the job the suicidal man could not do ! I would not take my worse enemy to that "Hosp" ! Did the guy have to wait 5 hours out side for any treatment ? i did and a friend of mine did also , who passes away in the " NEW " Hosp ! Did the guy who tried to die get the correct meds ? Need i say more , that place has a lot of lawyers to back up anything they say or do, half truths , lies and all ! The line of suits against them is growing every day, WATCH OUT FOR COTTAGE " hosp"
BUT ONCE AGAIN Good Job to the Officer and to the person who tried to Kill himself , pray you get out of that "Hosp" alive ! One who knows !
