We have a jumper

Avoid the 10th street / downtown connector area.

A man was reported appearing to get on the ledge of the 10th Street bridge around 10:45 am. Police have closed down 75/85 in both directions. They are also inflating a large airbag under the bridge.

Let’s hope he doesn’t do it.

    He’s OK. Decided against it, it seems. Hopefully he’ll get the help he needs and is treated with care.

    Is the “Alive” commenter from “11 Alive” or are you just happy the jumper is alive?

    What we need in this town is a pusher. If you’re going to kill yourself, have some balls and do it correctly.

    Yep, he climbed back over to the street side of the fence as SWAT teams were closing in on him from each side…I’ve got pictures but they aren’t great. It’s a good thing he was wearing a red shirt, made him much easier to see from my office.

    I volunteer my services. ANYTIME. Those attention whores need to be exterminated.

    You think he’ll get the chair?
