The NYT reports on an incident this afternoon on the Brooklyn Bridge mentioned earlier today in comments by Nabeguy:
NY Times: A man who was dangling from the Brooklyn Bridge was pulled to safety by police officers Sunday afternoon as scores of people watched from the pedestrian walkway, from the street below and from cars on the bridge that had been halted during the rescue.
When the officers arrived, the man, wearing a gray shirt and dark pants, was holding on to a railing on the southeast end of the bridge near the ramp to Cadman Plaza in Brooklyn. One foot was on a narrow ledge; the other hung in the air. Many feet below was an empty parking lot.
Dozens of police officers and firefighters, along with emergency vehicles, came onto the bridge and into the parking lot about 4:30 p.m. The man, whose identity was not immediately known, had both hands on the railing, but he was below eye level of the officers who had carefully approached him.
