Newark Police Rescue 'Suicidal Man' From Passaic River

The Newark Police Emergency Services Unit said it rescued a suicidal man early on February 5 after he jumped off a bridge into South Jersey’s Passaic River, according to the Newark Department of Public Safety.Footage from the department shows a police officer speaking to the man as he stands on a ledge, moments before he jumps off into the frigid river below.A statement from the department said police responded at around 2:30 am to reports of a man in his 30s on the bridge.

Police attempted to negotiate with him “in an attempt to keep him from taking his own life.” The man jumped into the river just after 5 am and was rescued by police, the department said.“Police deployed the Zodiac rescue boat to reach the man, who was bobbing underwater prior to the rescue,” according to the department.

“The victim was unresponsive following the rescue but was met onshore by members of EMS who treated him before transporting him to University Hospital for further treatment and evaluation.”Newark Public Safety Director Anthony F Ambrose praised the rescuers, saying "the officers involved did an excellent job in preserving his life.” Credit: Newark NJ Dept.
