Here’s the video of what happened on the Tydings Bridge in Cecil County, Maryland over this past weekend:
Trooper Joshua Kim told WBAL News that he was heading across the Millard E. Tydings Memorial Bridge over the Susquehanna River on Saturday when he noticed a man walking on the other side. Concerned, the officer turned around to check on him.
The video shows a man on the bridge offer a casual wave as the cruiser pulls up. Then, when the officer starts running toward him, the man throws a leg over the side of the bridge and appears ready to jump.
The man wasn’t identified and was being evaluated at a hospital.
