Man jumps off San Mateo Bridge, pulled from Bay by Coast Guard 

A 21-year-old man who was pulled from the Bay by the U.S. Coast Guard this morning apparently jumped off the San Mateo Bridge, a Coast Guard spokesman said.

The California Highway Patrol and a passing motorist reported seeing a person in the water near the western portion of the bridge at about 7:15 a.m., Lt. j.g. Jeremy Pichette said.

The Coast Guard dispatched a helicopter and 25-foot response boat to the area, and the man was pulled aboard the boat at about 8 a.m., Pichette said.

The man, who was conscious and breathing when he was pulled from the Bay, was given oxygen by paramedics and taken to a hospital in San Francisco for further treatment.

The CHP and the Foster City Fire Department also responded to the incident.
