• Briton missing after ‘fun’ jump off Brisbane bridge


    SYDNEY: A British man was missing on Monday after drinking and jumping off a bridge in Brisbane for “a bit of fun,” Australian police said. He was one of four men who decided to plunge off the William Jolly Bridge into the Brisbane River, roughly 10 meters below, after drinks at a backpacker’s hostel on Sunday night. “They had agreed between themselves that they were going to jump off the bridge for a bit of fun and to cool down,” Inspector Sean Cryer told reporters in Brisbane. Cryer said the man took a running jump from three or four meters away, leapt over a rail and went under the water. “He came back up again a few seconds later, rolled on his side, went back under the water and hasn’t been seen since,” Cryer said.
