BEND, Ore. – Bend Police officers were able to stop an apparently distraught man who was contemplating jumping to his death from an overpass in northeast Bend Saturday morning.
Police closed the street to traffic and began negotiating with the man, who was eventually grabbed by three officers and pulled to safety before he could jump, the lieutenant said.
The man whom police declined to identify, was transported to St. Charles Medical Center then released to Deschutes County Mental Health officials, Mack stated in a news release.
No charges were filed.
