An alert beat marshal attached to the Vashi police helped save the life of a 20-year-old youth, with the help of some fishermen. The youth had jumped off Vashi bridge on Tuesday night after a minor quarrel with his girlfriend. The woman in question had been seen crying after the youth jumped off the bridge. They were later handed over to their family after counseling.

Police said that around 10:30 pm on Tuesday, the police control room had received a call, stating that a person had jumped off the bridge. The control room alerted the beat marshal in Vashi, who promptly reached the site.
