A 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.”
Thank you Cristina https://t.co/GqK9A0d8kL

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.
