Early Breakfast with Jenni Falconer 4am - 6:30am
Jonny Benjamin has found 'Mike', the man who saved his life, after his search campaign went viral.
After being diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder aged 20, Jonny attempted to take his own life at London Waterloo Bridge in 2008.
Late last year, he appealed on YouTube and Twitter to #FindMike, the man who saved his life.
In collaboration with the charity Rethink Mental Illness, they found 'Mike', real name Neil Laybourn!
"I was so pleased to see how well Jonny was doing, I had thought about him over the years and had always hoped he was OK," said the 31-year-old personal trainer.
"I didn’t feel it was that big a deal, I did what anyone would do," he continued.
"I wasn’t trying to fix his problems that day, I just listened. Hand on heart that Jonny is one of the nicest people I have ever met, it’s brilliant to see him smiling again.
"We’ll definitely stay in touch," he added.
