UPDATED: Man Jumps Off Apartment Balcony in Pentagon City

Police car lightsA man has jumped off an apartment balcony in Pentagon City in an apparent suicide attempt.

It happened on the 400 block of 12th Street S., between Army Navy Drive and S. Eads Street. That’s the same stretch of road that was shut down yesterday due to a man with mental health issues who reportedly injured himself and was being uncooperative with police.

That same man is believed to be the person who jumped today, according to scanner traffic.

There were several witnesses to the incident, who are being interviewed by police. Officers are again shutting down 12th Street S. between Army Navy and Eads while they take photos and investigate.

The man is being transported to the trauma center at George Washington University Hospital. The severity of his injuries are unclear at this time.

Update at 3:15 p.m. — The road is reopening, according to scanner traffic. The fire department is being called to the scene for a “washdown” of the area of impact.

If you or someone you know is experiencing thoughts of suicide, help is a phone call away. Call CrisisLink at 703-527-4077.
