Officials: Twin Bridge jump ruled suicide

Posted: Updated:

Rescue crews wrapped up their search Sunday afternoon looking for the man officials say jumped from the Henderson Twin Bridges.

The Henderson County Sheriff's Office ruled the incident a suicide.

Authorities say they got a call around 1:00 p.m. Saturday that someone had jumped off the northbound bridge. Several agencies responded but the man was not found.

Rescue crews from Henderson County, Union County and Perry County continued searching for the man before 10:00 a.m. Sunday.

Crews carefully searched around barges and floating piles of debris which made it unsafe to be out for an extended period of time.

Crews wrapped up their search around 2:00 p.m. Sunday.

The name of the victim will not be released.
