MAN JUMPS OFF BRIDGE IN FALLS; BODY SOUGHT

The Coast Guard and other authorities are searching for the body of a man who is believed to have jumped off the Rainbow Bridge into the Niagara River late Friday night.

Several witnesses reported seeing the man climb onto a railing of the bridge at about 10:45 p.m. and plunge into the river, Niagara Regional Police Services officials said Saturday.

After landing in the water, the man surfaced briefly and was then swiftly carried downstream, police said. The man was about halfway across the bridge when he was seen mounting the railing.
