St. Marys Patrolman Josh Boos (back to camera), a trained crisis negotiator, recently was called to the scene of an attempted suicide of a man suspected of having mental health issues. After Boos convinced him to come down from a second-story window, he was taken to St. Rita's Medical Center for evaluation. The man in the hat was not involved in the situation.
