Crews Search Red River For Man Who Jumped Off Fargo-Moorhead Bridge

FARGO-MOORHEAD –  Police search the Red River for a man who jumped off the NP Avenue/Center Avenue bridge.

Boats and police officers searched the area for a couple hours.

Police say the man who jumped in the Red River was able to get out by himself.

“That person drove down around the river bank here and then saw a male get out of the river. He was soaking wet and went running up to a parking lot in the area where apparently somebody may have been videotaping the incident. That person got in the car and immediately left the area,” Moorhead Fire Department Dep. Chief Jeff Wallin said.

Wallin says the man was possibly doing a stunt.

He warns anyone against jumping in the river because they can be swept under by the current, or hit something they can’t see from the surface.
