Mt. Hope Bridge Climbers Reported to Police; YouTube Video Disappears
The Rhode Island Turnpike and Bridge Authority has contacted the State Police after two men allegedly climbed the Mount Hope Bridge last October and posted the video on YouTube.
Two men, who allegedly climbed the Mount Hope Bridge this past fall and posted the video on YouTube, are apparently keeping a low profile, reports The Sakonnet Times.
The incident, which occurred in October, was reported to the State Police by the Rhode Island Turnpike and Bridge Authority, according to the Times.
The video, which did not show the actual climb, has also apparently been removed from YouTube, the article says.
The Mount Hope Bridge spans Portsmouth and Bristol, and reaches a height of 285 feet. Climbing the bridge is illegal and extremely dangerous.
