Firefighters investigating smoke find man trying to hang woman

Firefighters sent out following reports of smoke from the bottom of a canyon in Utah ended up saving a woman from a man who was allegedly trying to hang her from an overpass.

Crews from the Unified Fire Authority had been sent out to Parleys Canyon, in Salt Lake, on July 1 but turned back after failing to find anything.

As they performed a U-Turn their route was blocked by a car on the underpass.

The four-man crew went to investigate what was happening and found a man pulling a rope that was 'strung over a metal pipe with the other end of the rope around a female's neck'.

According to the Salt Lake County Jail report, 'the female was crying and attempting to grab at the rope that was around her neck'.

After the man saw the firemen he bundled the woman into his car and tried to escape.

But the firefighters intercepted and detained him until Utah Highway Patrol troopers arrived at the scene.
The man has been named as Juan Echeveste Alba, 22, of Salt Lake City, and he was arrested for attempted murder and aggravated kidnapping.

The woman was treated for cuts and bruises, but was otherwise unharmed following her ordeal.

4. She's really lucky to be alive. There are hundreds of reasons why this could gave gone unnoticed

Just ridiculous luck that those firefighters were in the right place at the right moment, and paying attention.

I certainly hope the victim gets legal and emotional help and prosecutes his ass to oblivion.

Crap. Is this america in the 21st century? Does he have guns, too? Not good enough to strangle her, he had to hang her off an overpass?? What kind of sick is that?
