A Linkin Park Fan Used the Band’s Lyrics to Stop a Man From Committing Suicide

LINKIN PARK fan from Florida named Cristina Settanni did something incredible on her morning commute earlier this year, after she saw a man sitting on the ledge of a highway overpass.

She says she drove past him . . . like hundreds of other cars . . . but when she saw him again in her rearview mirror, she decided to stop, get out, and walk over to him.  She sat ON the ledge next to him . . . and admitted she was scared he’d jump.

In an attempt to comfort him, she recited a lyric from the Linkin Park song One More Light:  Quote:  “Who cares if one more light goes out, in a sky of a million stars?  Well, I do.”

A few other drivers had noticed them, and called 911.  The police came, and bodycam footage shows Cristina sitting next to the man on the overpass bridge . . . speaking to him in a calm, composed manner. The police were able to get him down safely.

For what it’s worth, “One More Light” was inspired by a friend of Linkin Park’s who had died of cancer.

It was also their last single with singer Chester Bennington, who committed suicide in July of 2017 . . . a few months before the song was released.
