We try to avoid posting videos that are too violent or exploitative to the site, but we felt this one had to be shared. Be warned however: though the video isn’t explicitly violent, it is emotional enough that it may make you cry.
If you need some setup before watching, here goes: a French police unit are swarming a suicidal man’s house. The man steps outside with a rifle pointed at himself, prepared to shoot even as police and his family beg him not to.
A sniper intervenes. A life is saved. A wife is horrified, then immensely grateful. We’re crying.
Watch the video.
