At 5.45am on 4 December 2014, Dan Price was seen tight-rope walking a Sydney Harbour Bridge railing.

It was on the wrong side of the barbed wire safety fence.

Suffering from severe depression, he was spotted by security guards who called police, bring traffic to a standstill.

Somehow despite everything going on around him, it was the words of a policeman that cut through and managed to pull Dan from the brink, giving him a second chance at life.

It took Danb 6 months before he felt he could start telling his story - and now he tells it across the globe, helping others in the areas of suicide prevention, mental health and wellness.

These days Dan has a new job and a new baby, Taleulah.

Dan is an amazing guy with an incredible talent and a great sense of humour.  We caught up with him on Ballarat Today.
