As the officer attempted to establish a rapport with the individual, he made comments about jumping. Officers negotiated with the individual for about two hours and convinced him to seek medical attention.

The individual was escorted from the trestle by Penn Yan Police, then transported to Clifton Springs Hospital for an evaluation.

Police say they were assisted by members of the Yates County Sheriff’s Office and Penn Yan Ambulance.
