A Spokane man tried to save another man from jumping off of the Monroe Street Bridge Monday night, but wasn?t able to keep a hold of the man?s shirt.

Don Kemper says he spotted the man sitting on the edge of the bridge around 7:30 p.m. and tried to pull him back to safety.

"I grabbed on the back of his shirt collar and I couldn?t hold on, and I screamed for help from somebody out in the street, didn?t work,? Kemper said.

The man fell to his death.

Police are investigating the apparent suicide.
