Bridge Jumper Suspect Taken Into Custody

FORT MYERS, FL. -- Nga Hong Primus age 42 of Cape Coral, found walking on I-75 on a bridge over the Caloosahatchee River and may have been planning on jumping, was taken into custody this afternoon.

On July 10 at approximately 1:23 pm, Florida Highway Patrol Troopers responded to a report of a pedestrian walking north against the southbound traffic lanes of I-75 along the Caloosahatchee Bridge at mile marker 143. 

Further reports advised that a few construction workers had made on site contact with the female and advised the female had intentions of jumping off the bridge. Construction workers advised the female initially had one leg extended over the concrete barrier. 

Upon the arrival of FHP, the female was standing in the inside lane of southbound I-75 at the center peak of the bridge. Primus was eventually escorted off the bridge by FHP and transported to an appropriate treatment facility.
