Police Escorting A Whale Rescue A Man Who Jumped From A Bridge
Westchester County police who were escorting a whale rescued a man who jumped from a bridge.
Officers from the Westchester County Police Marine Unit, who were diverting a wayward humpback whale back toward New York Harbor, rescued a man from the Hudson River Friday evening after he jumped from the George Washington Bridge. The whale had been heading up the Hudson River and marine officers were guiding it back south and, as they approached the bridge, they saw a man leap from the span and plummet to the river. They located him quickly, pulling him aboard the patrol boat. The man was transported to a New Jersey hospital.
