Three runners saved a man who tried to kill himself this morning around 7:30 after jumping into the East River near East 10th Street, according to multiple published reports.
The joggers, including an off-duty NYPD officer, jumped into the water and worked to keep the man afloat until a boat from the NYPD’s Harbor Unit responded.
The man who jumped was reportedly wearing a hospital ID bracelet. Police took him to Bellevue for observation.
