More on the suicidal man on the Aurora Bridge

by | Nov 20, 2008

A couple weeks ago, we had a post about a man who jumped from the Aurora Bridge and died. Now there’s word that the police officers’ actions would be subject to an inquest, in part because they tried to handcuff him to keep him from falling. 

There’s a photo hereof police talking to Derek Loso, 48, as he clung to the side of the bridge. Loso, who worked at KIRO TV, was married and had a young son. More details here.

On a more positive note, another Seattle Police officer on his way home from work was recognized (but not named, oddly enough) for his role in saving a suicidal woman on the same bridge just three days after Loso’s death.
