A male on top of the Victoria St. Bridge forced police to close the east-bound lanes Saturday morning.
Sgt. Darren Oelke of the Trail and Greater District Detachment said police were called to the scene after a man climbed to the top of the structure and indicated he wanted to jump.
Police closed one half of the bridge for approximately three and a half hours while dealing with the man.
Oelke also said the fire department was instrumental in the situation with its rescue boat in the water, helping with traffic control on the bridge and providing its ladder truck for access to rescue the male.
He said the male eventually came down on his own and was taken to Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital for treatment.
