Jumper Threatens to Leap off Bridge
Omaha, NE - Tense moments for the Omaha Police Department earlier this afternoon when a suicidal party threatened to jump off of the 36th Street bridge.
A picture tweeted by Omaha police officers shows a man, hanging over the bridge with Interstate 80 below him.
The incident caused traffic to back up along the highway. I-80 Eastbound lanes were shut down for about an hour.
Police were able to subdue the jumper and safely pull him back over.
