VIDEO: An off-duty Milwaukee firefighter heading home from work helped saved the life of a young woman threatening to jump off the Hoan bridge. Deputy chief John Litchford was heading south down the Hoan bridge Tuesday night when he saw the young woman outside of her car on at the highest point of the bridge. "And I noticed right away that her demeanor and all around that she was depressed, sad, and crying," he told WISN 12 NEWS in a phone interview. Litchford called in the situation that ultimately led to a complete shutdown of the Hoan Bridge.
