A UNADORNED guy leapt from the Williamsburg Bridge Saturday and had to be fished out of the East River via law enforcement officials, witnesses said.
A crowd formed as the nude man stood on the aspect of the bridge, ignoring efforts from police who attempted to speak him out of the often deadly jump.
“Then he jumped. He made a loud sound, like ‘Aaahh,’” Lower East Sider Anthony Garcia said.
Authorities moved in temporarily to rescue the person from the choppy waters, preserving out a stick for the man to snatch onto.
“I saw the firemen come, the NYPD boats, the helicopter,” Decrease East Aspect resident Adam Torres said. “The NYPD boat came and put a stick into the water. He grabbed the stick, they pulled him out, then they put the handcuffs on him.”
the man, who gave the impression to have a bloodied face, was once taken to Bellevue Scientific Middle.
