ST. AUGUSTINE, FL — April 25 was an unforgettable day for one custodian who had a hand in saving a troubled teen, according to the St. Augustine Record.
Lisa Moore, a City of St. Augustine custodian, was emptying trash when she spotted a young woman standing on the ledge of the fourth floor of a parking garage, the article stated.
According to the article, Moore’s attempts to talk to the young woman were, at first, ignored.
"She was standing there like a statue, and I thought to myself, ''Okay, this doesn''t look good,''" Moore said.
"She was as white as a sheet. She wouldn''t even acknowledge me. She just kept staring down at the ground," Moore added.
Moore was able to talk the woman, who had run away from an abusive home in Jacksonville, into coming down off the ledge and talk before police arrived to take the girl into custody, the article noted.
Moore has been honored by the St. Augustine City Commission, receiving a certificate commending her bravery, the article added.
