Trooper Les Boldt is being called a hero for saving the life of a woman trying to jump over the edge of a bridge in Green Bay.

In a moment of quick thinking, Boldt ran and grabbed the woman's arm just as she jumped over the edge and pulled her to safety.

The Trooper was following the 36-year-old after her husband alerted authorities that she seemed suicidal. She's a new mom and suffering from Post-Partum Depression.

The incident happened Monday on the Tower Drive bridge in Green Bay.
