WATERLOO, Iowa --- Waterloo police talked a man to safety after he threatened to jump off a bridge onto a busy highway Wednesday morning.

Police, state troopers and sheriff's deputies blocked off the Highway 21/Highway 20 interchange for about half an hour after the man was spotted on the overpass at about 9:15 a.m.

He had climbed over the short wall on the overpass deck, but officers coaxed him back, and paramedics with Waterloo Fire Rescue took him to Covenant Medical Center for an evaluation.
