Another Man Leaps Off Bridge

By From Staff And Wire Reports

A man jumped off the Monroe Street Bridge on Thursday evening, and authorities later abandoned efforts to find his body.

Two witnesses saw the man hit the Spokane River at 6:25 p.m., said Spokane police Sgt. Wally Cusick.

The witnesses were 10 feet away from the man, who was sitting on the east ledge of the bridge, Cusick said.

They tried to talk with him but he pushed off from the ledge and fell into the river, Cusick said. Rescuers searched along the river but found no trace of the man.

By 7:15 p.m., divers who were waiting in Peaceful Valley left their post along the river because the man’s body hadn’t been spotted.

Witnesses described the man as white, 20-25 years old, with short brown hair. He man wore a black denim jacket with fleece lining and jeans, Cusick said.

Another unidentified man jumped off the same bridge Feb. 1. His body also hasn’t been found.
