The man was wearing a short-sleeved white shirt and black pants. He looked about 40 years old and had been dead for about two hours. Police didn’t find any evidence of his identity.

According to witnesses, in the early morning the man appeared to be drunk as he climbed up to the bridge, and then shouted that he was “broken-hearted and will commit suicide!”

He then jumped into the sea. But the water was not deep, so he walked further out to the deeper waters and drowned himself.

The police let the rescue officer send the body to Aowudom hospital for an autopsy to find the exact cause of death. They will rush to find his relatives to pick up his body to perform religious rites.
