Mensch Alert: Drake Tried To Help Stop Man From Jumping Off Bridge

It’s not exactly news, since he didn’t exactly do anything, but we’re still kvelling over Drake right now.

Word is that when the rapper’s tour bus encountered stalled traffic after a performance in Manchester, England this past weekend, and the rapper learned the backup was due to police attempting to persuade a man on a bridge not to jump, he offered to help in the effort.

As the Manchester Evening News reported the police — unsurprisingly — declined; after all, they’re trained for the situation, while Drake, despite his many talents, is not. The man in question was rescued from the bridge and brought to a hospital.

A mensch in training, nu?
