A person threatening to jump from the Euclid Street bridge over the Santa Ana (5) Freeway in Anaheim Tuesday prompted the closure of the freeway in both directions, authorities said.
The California Highway Patrol issued a SigAlert for the area about 2:50 a.m. to allow fire crews to put an inflatable mat below the bridge, according to a CHP dispatcher.
Southbound traffic was being taken off the freeway at Brookhurst Street and northbound traffic was being taken off at Lincoln Avenue.
Authorities are on scene trying to talk the person down.
It was unclear if it was a man or woman.
