Still Waters Posted May 26 #1 Share Posted May 26 (IP: Staff) · A 17-year-old boy fell to his death while climbing a Los Angeles bridge for a social media stunt, according to police. Officers were called to the Sixth Street Viaduct at around 2am on Saturday and discovered the teenager, who was later pronounced dead in hospital. Police Chief Michel Moore said the teenager slipped and fell "when climbing upon one of the arches, in order to post, apparently, a social media broadcast". The $588m (£476.25m) bridge opened last July to replace an 84-year-old art deco one, and runs for 3,500ft (1.1km) over the concrete-lined Los Angeles River and connects the city centre to the Eastside. https://news.sky.com/story/teenager-dies-while-climbing-la-bridge-for-social-media-broadcast-12888855 2 4 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
