Good Samaritan Prevents Another Man's Suicide: 'You Got One Person Right Now Who Loves You'

In today's edition of the "Good Stuff," a landscaper persuades a man to go on living. CNN's Chris Cuomo reports.

Lonnie Monroe, 54, was headed home from a landscaping job in California, walking on an overpass, when destiny called.

Monroe says he saw a man on the other side of the fence who told him he was going to kill himself.

"That's when my mind said, 'grab him, don't let him go any further.' I talked to him. 'You got one person right now who loves you and wants you on this side.'"

Monroe held onto the man for two hours.
