A man jumped into the Danube River from Budapest’s Erzsébet Bridge.

The Hungarian Police received the emergency call at 9:45pm on the 21st of March. The caller warned the authorities that a man was standing outside of the fences of the bridge.


When the River Police Forces arrived to the crime scene the man was already adrift in the water.  The rescue team saved him in a few seconds and they handed him to the ambulance for further care.
