A mum who rescued a teenage girl from the wrong side of a motorway bridge says she knew she wouldn't have been able to live with herself if she didn't help.
As she approached the bridge at Hollyhedge Road, her son noticed a young woman on the wrong side, and shouted for his mum to 'watch out.'
Instead of driving on, Hope took the next exit on the motorway, and drove back to the bridge where the young girl had been threatening to jump.
She held on to the teenager and comforted her until police arrived around five minutes later, and took the woman to hospital.
Speaking to the M.E.N, Hope, from Northenden, said: "I have a daughter myself so I was never going to let her jump.
"I have never been in that position before but I just thought, I would not be able to live with myself if I drove on and didn’t go and help her."
Hope said she been on her way to KFC with her two children when her son noticed a woman on the wrong side of the bridge.
"I flew down the motorway and came off at the next exit and drove back to the bridge," Hope said.
"I got out of the car and just clung on to her. It was so wet and I was scared she was going to slip off.
"I just told her that she didn't need to do this and that I wasn't going to let her jump."
Hope says she took hold of the woman's clothing until police officers arrived at the bridge several minutes later.
"As soon as I saw the police approaching, I just grabbed her coat and pulled her back towards the pavement," Hope said.
"She added me on Facebook last night and messaged me saying thank you for everything and that she would keep me updated with how she is.
"She said she was receiving help now. I just told her I was there as a friend if she needed me.
"It was a scary situation but I am so glad I was able to her. I couldn't have just driven past - that's someone's daughter."
A spokesperson for GMP said: "At around 5:30pm yesterday (Wednesday 8 July 2020), police were called to reports of concern for the welfare of a woman seen on a bridge on Hollyhedge Road.
"Emergency services attended and the woman was taken to hospital."
