Plea after man falls from bridge
GRAMPIAN Police were today appealing for witnesses after a man fell from an Aberdeen bridge.
The 32-year-old was seriously injured when he fell from Denburn Bridge, on Aberdeen’s Rosemount Viaduct, after being chased by shop workers.
It was understood the man had been suspected of shoplifting in the Schoolhill area before the incident.
The man was taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary after he fell on to the Denburn Road dual carriageway. The busy road was closed for around three hours after emergency workers were called out to treat the man, who suffered serious injuries. Police officers and paramedics arrived at the scene about 11.25am yesterday.
A Grampian Police spokesman said: “We are appealing for witnesses to an incident, whereby a 32-year-old man fell from the bridge over Denburn Road.”
The man is about 5ft 10ins tall and has dark hair.
