Clark spoke to the woman and she indicated she was going to jump off the bridge, according to police.

He was able to grab hold of her, preventing her from jumping.

Clark was able to maintain control of her until OPD officers Thomas Rupert, Steven Carroll and Derek Jansson arrived on the scene to assist in bringing the woman back to safety.

She was later transported by police to Oswego Hospital for evaluation.

The four officers were recognized at Tuesday’s Common Council meeting for their life-saving efforts.
