An 18-year-old is alive after jumping from the Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge yesterday afternoon, police say.
The man jumped from the bridge into the East River at around 1:30 p.m. yesterday, and was rescued by a passing NYC Ferry, an NYPD spokesperson said.
The ferry then hurried him to Roosevelt Island, where an ambulance took him to the New York- Presbyterian hospital, the spokesperson said.
One twitter user, Luis Cardozo, witnessed the incident and wrote that the 18-year-old seemed unconscious, then woke up and tried to swim toward shore, but started to drown.
He posted videos of what appears to be the 18-year-old staying afloat as a NYC Ferry came to the rescue.
The New York Post was first to report the incident.
Bet it was another Jackass stunt for tv the video will be on all star hip hop in a few days
I heard he was a baseball pitching prodigy and just learned he was drafted by the Mets.
Pretty weak for first time long time.
