Canadian superstar Drake is currently on the road for his ‘The Boy Meets World Tour.’ During a recent stop in Manchester, Drizzy made headlines when he reportedly offered to talk down a suicidal man from jumping off of England’s Mancunian Way Bridge. The reports says that the man was eventually safely brought down from the bridge and taken to hospital for treatment and assessment. According to the Manchester Evening News, Drake’s tour bus was caught in a traffic pile-up due to the man when Drake decided to help police. The City Centre Intergrated Neighbourhood Policing Team states:

“One officer was approached by a male from a tour van caught up in the traffic congestion, claiming to be part of Drake’s entourage… He offered for Drake to speak to the male on the bridge, if that would help. The offer was declined with thanks.”
