A bus driver in Dayton, Ohio, is being hailed a hero after he stopped to help a suicidal woman.

The woman was threatening to jump off of a bridge.

The driver offered to give the woman a hug and says he was prepared to do anything to get her to come back to safety.

First responders showed up before the woman jumped and she eventually changed her mind.

The transit authority is planning on honoring the bus driver later this month.
