NEGOTIATORS from various police forces have been trying to prevent a young man from jumping off a motorway bridge on the outskirts of Malaga
112 Emergencies Andalucia reported receiving the first calls at around 12.10pm, alerting them that they had seen a man sitting on the highway, on the other side of the guardrail, apparently with suicidal intentions according to witnesses.
At around 6.20pm, more than six hours after he got on the bridge with the threat of throwing himself off, the young man finally conceded, and has been transferred to a hospital in Malaga, while the National Police has taken over the investigation, as reported by elcasomalaga.com.
