Emergency services were called to Missingham Bridge around 4.30am to reports a 37-year-old had jumped into the water.
He was located about 150m downstream a short time later.
“Pretty luck, it’s a pretty high bridge, there’s signs everywhere saying don’t jump, I believe, whether or not he was in full control of his faculties, but either way it was a good outcome when we got there, we picked him up and brought him back and he’s safe somewhere.”
Anyone who jumps off the bridge risks a $3300 fine.
