The Rush Hour Scene on the Tobin Bridge as Man Threatens to Jump.

A man exited his car on the Tobin Bridge’s upper deck during this evening’s rush hour and climbed up onto a railing threatening to jump. An ambulance crew from Chelsea’s Cataldo Ambulance and a Chelsea police officer were the first to reach him, according to audio on the police scanner. Boston firefighters, Boston EMS, Boston fire’s Marine Unit and the state police then arrived. The man was finally talked down after almost an hour teetering on the railing, in the wind. This was my view from Charlestown. Please, to anyone considering anything like this, get help, things  do get better…or call the samaritans.

    You’ve also captured that the bridge needs a good paint job.
