If it was the big bridge, then he jumped. It has about a five foot tall rail on both sides all the way across the bridge. There's no way a person could accidentally fall off it.

More info please, if anybody's got it. Dumb move either way if true...when is it gonna stop folks?!! Was he trying to jump off it for fun or deliberately trying to hurt himself? Is he alive? I know ambulances went out Coopertown Road going that way, and Lifestar has been flying in and out all day. Prayers for all having a tough weekend.

Why would someone try to jump off of that bridge into the water?! There is not enough water there. That's just awful.

I don't know what happened but the scanner said that they got a call that someone jumped off the bridge and hit there head on a rock and was not breathing, sent law, ambulance and had rescue on standbye.
Whatever happened someone died and I am sorry for their loss, I can only imagine how hard it would be to loose a child.
Everyone pray for this family during this awful time.
well

How old was he? Still in high school at Scott High? Who are his parents? Know they and his classmates who knew him are devastated.

That is truly a sad thing. Folks PALEEZE don't try any bridge or cliff diving here into shallow water/rocks. This is not Alcopoca on TV with pro divers. Huntsville Pool and the olympic-sized BSF pool at Bandy Creek are opening up for the summer. At BSF it's $3 adults/teens,$2 (6-12), 5 and under tots are FREE. Family passes for the season are $35 and $25, depending. I don't know how much at Huntsville pool.

We've had others before who have been hurt or died trying things at the river. I remember one girl who broke her back/was totally paralyzed/had just graduated high school here/was athlete headed to college on scholarship. Accidents DO happen, so USE COMMON SENSE.

Just to clerify this was an accident..he did not do this purposely!He was swimming and the current got to strong and he went under and drowned! so if everyone could just pray for all his family even though he was my brother in laws brother since he had lived with my sister and her husband i have considered him as my nephew. So please just pray instead of sayin things that isnt true thank you very much and have a wonderful day!
