Well, they do say “if you see something, say something.” In this case, the “something” turned out to be a giant red umbrella and not a woman dressed up as a character from the “Handmaid’s Tale” getting ready to jump off a building in New York City.
On the left, a photo of the suspected woman in a Handmaid’s Tale costume, on the right, a photo from the NYPD and the “jumper”:
Today I thought I saw a woman dressed as a handmaid about to jump from a building. I called 911. pic.twitter.com/EIrz6wR0bz

Oh, it gets better. The NYPD News Twitter account responded to the photo with a message saying never be hesitant to call 911 and “Blessed be the umbrella,” channeling the show:
Blessed be the umbrella. Thank you Casey and the @POPSUGAR team for alerting us to this crime, glad we could save the day.
Jokes aside, if you’re ever hesitant about calling 911 – don’t be! We take all calls seriously, and worse case we get to go home with a great story. https://t.co/PJLNw9Gx0P
