SAN FRANCISCO -- Authorities late Thursday were continuing negotiations with a man they believe is suicidal on one of the Golden Gate Bridge towers, police said.
Police received reports around 6:15 p.m. that the man climbed a portion of one of the towers, San Francisco police spokesman Gordon Shyy said. In addition to negotiators, the California Highway Patrol, Golden Gate Bridge authority and the U.S. Coast Guard have responded.
Negotiators were still talking to the man as of 10:15 p.m., the CHP said.
Shyy did not know how high the man had climbed. He said that while no lanes of the bridge were closed, enough of a significant police presence existed to cause drivers to slow.
"There may be some rubbernecking going on," Shyy said. He also said that fog was complicating the situation.
Additional information about the man was not immediately known.
