BOSTON — A Transit police detective stopped a man from jumping on the tracks at the MBTA Park Street Station Wednesday.

The man, who Transit police describe as suicidal, can be seen leaning over the edge of the tracks in surveillance video released Thursday.

"As the video depicts the male was about to jump into the 'pit' area when the quick acting detective was able to grab the male, practically in mid air, and prevent him from harming himself," said Transit police officials.
