A middle-aged man has been rescued from the Lagos lagoon after he allegedly jumped into the water from the Third mainland bridge.

The incident attracted a crowd of passers-by who stopped on the bridge to catch a glimpse of the man while being rescued by some fishermen and officials of the State Waterways Authority.

He is now, however, said to be receiving treatment at a hospital.

This is the latest in a series of suspected suicide attempts off the third mainland bridge.

In June 2018, there were reports of a woman who allegedly jumped off the bridge into the water.

In the same vein, a medical doctor, Allwell Orji, jumped to his death into the lagoon in March 2017.
