Bridge sergeant talks jumper off of Golden Gate 

A middle-age man planned to jump from the Golden Gate Bridge at the tail end of rush hour Monday night, but authorities were able to talk him off the ledge, according to the California Highway Patrol.

He climbed over the rail midspan around 7:30 p.m., choosing the side facing San Francisco’s breathtaking skyline for his final act in life, until a bridge sergeant apparently convinced him that it wasn’t the best idea.

Instead, the man was carted off on a hopefully life-saving trip to San Francisco General Hospital, for observation, CHP said. His car was towed.
