I can't believe someone would do that.

Would have expected an interview with him.

The policemen were putting their own lives in danger while trying to save the distraught man. The bag was inflated in case he or a reassure fell.

Such public suicide attempts are selfish in that they don't care they are endangering others.

Whether or not the fellow saw the bag so thought he would be the hero to all probably won't be known. He'll tell the version that best suits him.

I couldn't tell if the crowd was egging on the distraught man to jump, or just supporting the one who was reaching him. There have ben cases where crowds have encouraged jumpers.

...since the bag was down there. No reason drawing it out longer than necessary. Anyway, the fright of the fall even to the bag might make him reconsider ever attempting it again. Fear, like pain, can be a powerful lesson.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
