THIS is the heart-stopping moment a teenage boy saves a suicidal woman's life as she attempts to throw herself from a bridge.
In the footage, which was taken by a security camera in the Russian town of Kropotkin, a woman can be seen standing on a crowded bridge.
Just as a group of teenagers passes her, she hoists herself up onto the handrail and begins to climb the fence.
Luckily, one of the boys from the group spots her and heroically turns around and races towards her, grabbing onto her trailing leg to stop her, moments before he lets go.
Don’t judge all groups of young lads badly.

The boy's friends then rush over and help pull her to safety, and the emotionally woman collapses in their arms.
It's understood that the brave boys then handed her over to the police to make sure she was safe, and she was later taken to hospital to receive counselling.
Speaking to told local media, one of the teens, Alexander, said: "When we walked about five metres past her, my friend noticed her starting to climb the fence and said she was about to jump.
"I just turned and ran, and grabbed her leg. Then others came along and helped to bring her down."
