NEW YORK -- 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.
