LA MESA (CNS) - A man stood on the edge of an overpass today as if he were about to jump to his death, prompting the closure of Interstate 8, but he eventually walked away, the California Highway Patrol reported.
CHP officers received a call around 2:45 p.m. reporting that a man with his arms outstretched was standing outside a chain link fence on a bridge on Alvarado Road, looking down on Interstate 8 traffic below as several bystanders tried to coax him to safety, according to the CHP.
Lanes on both sides of the interstate were closed near Baltimore Drive for about 10 minutes while police and ambulances rushed to the scene, but the man left the bridge of his own volition around 3:10 p.m. and was taken to a local hospital, the CHP said.
