A man reportedly jumped from the Route 30 (Wrights Ferry) Bridge this afternoon, was not located by search crews, but then reappeared on the bridge 40 minutes later.
Emergency personnel responded this afternoon to a report that a man had jumped from the bridge at about 1:45 p.m. Rescue boats from Columbia Borough and Blue Rock Fire Departments deployed from Columbia River Park just before 2 p.m. and scanned the waters near the bridge for about half an hour before returning to shore. A drone was also deployed to assist in the search. West Hempfield Police surveyed the river from the Route 30 bridge and the Route 462 (Veterans Memorial) Bridge, and a York ambulance was on-hand at the park.
No one was detected in the water, although a man matching witness descriptions later appeared on the bridge, according to a source. Reportedly, four witnesses had seen the man jump about ten piers over from the Wrightsville side. (Penn Live reports that by 2:25 p.m., the man was back on the bridge, talking to police, and was being evaluated for injuries.)
