FLORIDA -- State Police say a Trooper talked a suicidal man off a bridge on Saturday.

The Trooper responded to a report of a man standing on the railing of the bridge located at mile marker 177.5 on I-90 just before 8 a.m. The 47-year-old man was threatening to jump when the Trooper arrived.

However, State Police say the Trooper was able to convince the man to come down. He was taken to an Amsterdam hospital for evaluation.
