Although the man’s identity could not be identified, it was reported that he resorted to taking the action in an apparent suicide attempt and is said to be receiving medical attention at a hospital.
In June 2018, there were unconfirmed stories of a woman in a Sports Utility Vehicle who allegedly jumped off the bridge into the water.
