Cops seek man who rappelled down Brooklyn Bridge

NEW YORK (AP) — New York City police are hunting for a daredevil who rappelled down the side of the Brooklyn Bridge.

Police say witnesses reported a man climbing down the bridge around 9 a.m. Thursday on the mesh installed as part of ongoing construction. He couldn’t make it down from there and used some type of hose to descend the Brooklyn side and drop onto a building where he vanished.

Investigators swept the bridge and roadways and found no sign of the man and no sign of danger.

Police believe the man was pulling off a stunt and do not suspect terrorism. They are looking for the suspect.
