Man Tappan Zee Bridge, A former government worker dangled from the eastbound side of New York’s Tappan Zee Bridge with a sign accusing county officials of a “cover-up” on Monday.
The man was mid-span on the bridge, a major crossing north of New York City that connects suburban Westchester and Rockland counties. He was hanging from a harness attached to a rope ladder about halfway between the Hudson River and the bridge roadway.His sign accused Rockland County officials of a “cover-up” and “retaliation.”
Rockland County spokesman Ron Levine said the man is a former employee with the county’s department of mental health who was let go because he was unable to perform his duties.
Levine said he was unsure of the man’s complaints. He said the man had applied for disability payments and had been approved.
“This is bizarre,” Levine said. “This is a very strange way of making a point.”
County officials were not releasing the man’s identity, he said.
State police were trying to get the man back onto the bridge. Traffic was backed up for miles, and onlookers gathered on the riverbank.
