Suicide Jumper On California Incline

Just after 1PM on Monday, a man armed with a kitchen knife abandoned his car and climbed the Palisades Park bluffs and onto the pedestrian bridge over the Incline where he hung onto the outside of the rail.

SMPD and the Crisis Negotiations Team arrived on the scene and attempting contact with a distraught individual resulting in the complete closure of the California Incline. SMFD placed an airbag under the man. The Crisis Negotiations Team was able to convince the man to toss away the knife.

After 5 hours of negotiation, police officers got a hold of him from the bridge as firefighters used the Hook And Ladder truck and came up behind him. They got him over the railing and onto the bridge.

The man was transported to a local hospital for evaluation.
