Dramatic video has emerged showing a high school football coach in Portland, Oregon, disarming a suicidal student then hugging and comforting the teen.

The video of the incident, obtained by the CBS affiliate KOIN 6 News, captures the moment when the Parkrose high school coach Keanon Lowe encountered Angel Granados-Diaz.

While Lowe’s actions had been extensively reported, the video provided visual documentation of how his quick thinking and compassion potentially prevented a tragedy.

At around noon on 17 May this year, Granados-Diaz walked on to campus, carrying a shotgun. He went into a classroom with the intent of killing himself, authorities said, not to kill other students.
