CPD Officers Render Aid to Fifty-Four Year Old Man Attempting Suicide

CHICAGO – On Saturday, September 10th, at approximately 12:29 p.m., Chicago Police Officer

Fernando Flores and partners were dispatched to a call of a man threating suicide at the 2700

Block of West Montrose. Upon arrival they observed a male standing on top of the bridge which

crosses the river, threatening to jump. The officers immediately developed a rapport with the man

and engaged him in conversation. Their communication skills helped to calm the man until other

assisting units arrived on scene. As the Fire Department arrived the man loosened his grip from

the bridge, the officers with the help of the fire department jumped into action and returned the

man to safety.

The male victim was subsequently taken to Swedish Covenant hospital where he is currently

undergoing psychological evaluation.
