This is a heroic moment been captured at a High School’s CCTV at the US State of Oregon. A Portland school district has just released the video footage that shows a high school football coach disarming a suicidal student, then hugs to comfort him. The surveillance video has gone viral on the internet, and people online are hailing the coach as ‘Hero’ for saving him with his spontaneous act of kindness. Media reports have confirmed that police officers have taken the teenager to custody and he would be receiving mental health care to heal him. Turkish Airlines' Pilot Surprises His Teacher Who Was Flying With Him. 

The extraordinary scene reportedly took place at Parkrose High School in Oregon. The incident occurred in May, and the school’s security camera captured the moment. The footage, however, has only been released recently by the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office. In the video, the student, identified as 19-year-old Angel Granados-Diaz, can be seen to enter a classroom with a gun. Coach Keanon Lowe quickly took the gun off and then hugged to console him. A school security staff immediately took the gun away, while the coach continued to embrace his suicidal student.

The school’s superintendent Michael Lopes Serrao said in a letter to the families that before the incident, two students had informed a staff member of “concerning behaviour,” by the 19-year-old. The Oregonian reported that Granados-Diaz did not want to kill himself at home as his mother could find it, so he went to school to do it. No one was injured. And Granados-Diaz has been sentenced to three years of probation. He would also get mental health help and treatment for substance abuse.
