Man dangles for hours off NY's Tappan Zee Bridge
Man upset with county dangles with sign and rope ladder from NY's Tappan Zee Bridge
By The Associated Press

TARRYTOWN, N.Y. (AP) ' A former government worker who dangled for hours from New York's Tappan Zee Bridge has been lowered and taken on board a boat.

The man had been hanging from a harness attached to a rope ladder Monday about halfway between the Hudson River and the bridge roadway. He had a sign and apparently was upset with Rockland County officials.

State police lowered him to just above the water at around 2 p.m. He then jumped or fell into the water and was immediately hauled on board a boat.

The Tappan Zee bridge is a major crossing north of New York City that connects suburban Westchester and Rockland counties.
