The Vincent Thomas Bridge remained closed in both directions Saturday as a possibly suicidal man entered his second day perched on the structure, authorities said.

The California Highway Patrol was made aware of the man’s presence at 6:31 a.m. Friday. The man is 60 years old and has been on the bridge before, a CHP spokesman told City News Service. No further details about the man’s situation were immediately available.

The bridge, which crosses the Los Angeles Harbor and links San Pedro with Terminal Island, was closed between Ferry Street and Harbor Boulevard.

Caltrans tweeted at 10:45 a.m. Saturday that the bridge remained “closed in both directions until further notice due to emergency activity.”
