Man finds stranger who saved him from suicide 6 years ago

Six years ago, Jonny Benjamin, who'd recently been diagnosed with chronic schizoaffective disorder, tried to kill himself by jumping off Waterloo Bridge in London. A stranger walking by stopped and spoke with him for a half hour, telling him that "things would get better" and offering to buy him a cup of coffee. Eventually, the man convinced Benjamin not to jump.

Two weeks ago, Benjamin, who now works for mental health related charities, decided to find the stranger who saved his life. All he to go on was a vague physical description and a nickname—"Mike"—that he'd given the man.
