Ottawa Police convince man to not jump off bridge

Posted by wlpo on April 23, 2014

There were some anxious moments on the Veteran’s Memorial Bridge in Ottawa.

A man was threatening to jump off the bridge Tuesday afternoon before police were able to successfully talk him down after about a half hour. The scene caused traffic to be down to one lane on the northbound side of the bridge.

Ottawa Police haven’t released the name of the man who they talked down from jumping.
