Bridge jump

Public safety personnel search the Kankakee River this morning in search of a person who reportedly jumped off the Schuyler Avenue Bridge shortly after 10 a.m. today. According to an eyewitness, a black man was standing on the bridge facing west. Several police officers arrived on scene, where a civilian woman was pleading with the man not to jump. He jumped shortly thereafter. Four rescue boats are now in the water conducting a search. More details will come when made available.
