Man rappels down Brooklyn Bridge; sought by police

July 4, 2013

NEW YORK (AP) — New York City police are searching for a daredevil who rappelled down the side of the Brooklyn Bridge.

Police say witnesses reported a man climbing down the bridge Thursday morning on the mesh installed as part of ongoing construction.

He couldn’t make it down from there and used some type of hose to descend and drop onto a building on the Brooklyn side, where he vanished.

Investigators swept the bridge and roadways and found no sign of the man and no sign of danger.

Police believe the man was pulling off a stunt and do not suspect terrorism. They are looking for the suspect.
