Emergency Personnel Respond to Call of Possible Jumper on St. Croix River Bridge

An investigation is ongoing after emergency personnel responded to a possible jump off the St. Croix River bridge late Sunday night. No fatalities, injuries or missing persons have been reported.

UPDATE (11:41 a.m., Oct. 22, 2012): Hudson Police Chief Marty Jensen said it was possible that the "jumper" didn't jump into the water. The witnesses who reported the Sunday night incident said the person was 15-30 feet from the east end of the bridge, which is not directly over water, Jensen said.

Personnel from St. Croix EMS, Rescue and Dive Team, Hudson Fire Department, the Washington County Sheriff’s Office and the St. Croix County Sheriff's Office assisted at the scene, according to Jensen.

According to the police report the dive team terminated operations at 11:32 p.m. and all Hudson Police units cleared at 11:45 pm.
