Man Jumps From Key Bridge, Survives

Here is a news brief from the Washington Post’s Clarence Williams last week — one of the only media outlets to mention this incident: “A man plunged from the Key Bridge near Georgetown Friday night July 26 and was pulled from the Potomac River by the D.C. police, according to authorities and witnesses. Few details about the 10 p.m. incident were available immediately. However, a witness said police in boats were in the area at the time. They quickly got the man out of the water and began CPR, the witness said. He was taken to a hospital. Authorities said he was unconscious but breathing.”

One observer at the scene later told the Georgetowner that a police officer said that the jumper is a bartender who worked in Georgetown.
