The Hotline Bling hitmaker was reportedly leaving Manchester following a performance in the city when his tour bus got caught up in traffic on the Mancunian Way bridge, where an unidentified man was planning to jump to his death.

According to The Manchester Evening News, a law enforcement officer was "approached by a male from a tour van caught up in the traffic congestion, claiming to be part of Drake’s entourage."

“He offered for Drake to speak to the male on the bridge, if that would help," City Centre Integrated Neighbourhood Policing Team Inspector Phil Spurgeon says. "The offer was declined with thanks.”

Officers were eventually able to coax the man down from the bridge and he was taken to a nearby hospital for a medical evaluation.
