Albany Police Prevent Man From Leaping Off Albany Bridge

Police officers are being credited with preventing a man from jumping off a bridge over the Hudson River at Albany.

The Albany Police Department says city officers, police from neighboring Rensselaer and state troopers responded to the Dunn Memorial Bridge Sunday afternoon after motorists reported a man standing on the edge of the span's westbound side.

When police arrived, the man was standing behind a chain-link safety fence about 100 feet over the river.

The man made a sudden move to jump, but the officers were able to hold onto his legs and pull him to safety.
