Things happen that we are not used to in Shepherdstown…

Like this, a couple of hours ago (from The Herald):

3:53 p.m. EDT, October 5, 2011 – SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va.

A 55-year old Pennsylvania man who jumped off the James Rumsey Bridge over the Potomac River near Shepherdstown was pronounced dead by rescuers as he was pulled from the river Wednesday afternoon, officials said.

According to Doug Pittinger, director of Jefferson County (W.Va.) Emergency Services, witnesses said the man jumped from the bridge just before 2:13 p.m., the time at which the original call was placed to Jefferson County 911.

This will be news for days!
