Another man jumps off Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos


A yet to be identified young man in the early hours Thursday, in a failed suicide bid, allegedly, jumped into the Lagos Lagoon on Third Mainland Bridge (in photo) after alighting from a taxi popularly called Uber.

This happened barely 10 days after a man, in a similar incident, alighted from a taxi and jumped into the Lagos lagoon.

In the latest incident, the man was said to have jumped into the lagoon from the Third Mainland Bridge around midnight.

Fortunately, he landed on floating logs of wood beneath the Third Mainland Bridge.

Director General of Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA), Dr Femi Oke-Osanyintolu, who confirmed the report, said the victim was taken to the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH).
