A police negotiator Wednesday talked a young man safely down from the top of one of Six Flags Discovery Kingdom's tallest roller coasters, from which he may have intended to jump, public safety officials said.
Firefighters and police officers converged on the park at about 12:30 p.m., responding to reports of someone threatening to commit suicide by jumping off the 150-foot-tall Medusa roller coaster.
With the Vallejo park closed weekdays during this part of the season, only employees should have been inside. It was not immediately known if the man, whom police did not identify, was an employee, park spokeswoman Nancy Chan said.
