Brooklyn Bridge closed in both directions

Saturday, May 04, 2013

The Brooklyn Bridge remains closed in both directions Saturday after police negotiated with a man who was threatening to jump.

The situation began unfolding at about 3 p.m. Saturday as police tried to talk the man down from the Brooklyn tower of the bridge.

Just after 4:30 p.m. the man was rescued.

The bridge remains closed, and the NYPD is advising motorists to consider alternate routes.
