During the FM104 Phoneshow, a caller stated he was on the ledge of an overpass with a knife. Dixon spoke with the man for about an hour until the man eventually hung up. He was later talked down by police, according to dailydot.com.
Social media buzzed during the incident with some listeners siding with Dixon, other against him - citing the fact that he broke for commercials at one point and then picked back up with the suicide caller.
Some likened the affair to the somewhat recent prank call by Australian radio personalities to a UK hospital caring for Kate Middleton which led to a nurse's suicide. They are suggesting radio stations need better strategies for crisis management.
