Man Jumps Into The St. Lawrence River, Shuts Ogdensburg Bridge

Police confirm the Prescott-Ogdensburg International Bridge was forced to shut on Thursday, after a 25-year-old man from Brampton jumped off the bridge.

Emergency crews were called to the bridge around 6:30pm, closing it to traffic on both sides of the border for a number of hours.

Multiple agencies, including the coast guard and Ogdensburg police looked for the man, but he wasn't found. 

The investigation is on-going, and Ontario Provincial Police say they will continue their search Friday.

    These are very well-trained dogs but the sad thing is that they're probably not going to eat those donuts anyway...
