The man climbed across the roadway from the middle of the bridge’s pedestrian walkway around 9:15 a.m. and plunged into the water below, the New York Post stated.

After falling 135 feet, the man was pulled out of the water by an NYPD boat and taken to a dock at Brooklyn Bridge Park, the Daily News added.

Officers in the boat saw the man’s fall before they arrived to pull him out of the harbor, the Post added.
