Man Threatening to Jump from Loop 410 Overpass Steps Down After Pleading With Police

SAN ANTONIO — A man threatening to jump off a Northwest Side overpass decided against taking his own life after police officers plead with the man for at least 30 minutes Wednesday afternoon.

Officers shut down the interchange at Loop 410 and Interstate 10 around 1:30 p.m. after police approached a shirtless man who a passerby reported walking the bridge at 1 p.m. and determined he may be considering suicide.

 Two police officers could be seen pleading with the man on the overpass while other officers stood underneath the bridge looking up.

The man was standing on top of a pillar where the Loop 410 ramp splits east and west bound.

The man turned around and stepped toward police just after 2 p.m.
