    Background: DRAMA ON NEW YORK'S FAMOUS BROOKLYN BRIDGE.

    YESTERDAY (FRIDAY) A MAN AGED ABOUT 40 APPEARED NEAR THE TOP OF THE GIANT BRIDGE SPARKING OFF A FULL SCALE POLICE RESCUE OPERATION.

    WHEN THE POLICE ARRIVED THEY FOUND THE MAN PERCHED ON A CABLE HIGH ABOVE THEM AND REFUSING TO COME DOWN. THEY BLOCKED THE ROADWAY BELOW, SET UP NETS AND THEN STARTED UP THE BRIDGE CABLES TOWARDS HIM.

    THE POLICE WHEN THEY CAME CLOSE TO THE MAN FOUND HE WAS ALMOST ASLEEP -- EITHER DRUGGED OR DRUNK. THEIR MAIN PROBLEM WAS KEEPING HIM AWAKE AS THEY TRIED TO LEAD HIM TO SAFETY. FINALLY THEY SECURED A HARNESS AROUND HIM AND LOWERED HIM TO THE GROUND.

    AT A HOSPITAL THE MAN REFUSED TO GIVE HIS NAME BUT AUTHORITIES SAID HE HAD RECEIVED TREATMENT THERE BEFORE. ALL HE WAS PREPARED TO SAY WAS THAT HE HAD "WIFE TROUBLE".
