Ruth Langsford close to tears as she hugs teen who saved 6 people from suicide

Ruth Langsford was close to tears today as a brave teen opened up about how her own struggle with suicidal thoughts had pushed her to help others feeling the same way.

Paige Hunter, 18, appeared on This Morning and revealed that she had almost killed herself by jumping off a bridge when she was stopped by two men in a van.

They managed to talk her away from the edge and she later realised she wanted to help others who were in the same position.

She then hand wrote 240 messages and tied them to bridges, including the one she tried to jump from, in a bid to try and speak to someone and convince them not to take their own life.


Host Eamonn Holmes was stunned when she revealed she knew she had saved six people through her notes.

"How incredible," he exclaimed.

Asked whether she now thought life was worth living, Paige replied: "Yes definitely… talk to somebody, family, friends or parents – anything."

At the end, Ruth praised Paige, who she revealed had been incredibly nervous before the interview.
