A dash cam video caught the moment when a man got out of his car and jumped from the Causeway Bridge. The man leaped into the water below in an attempt to escape from police, but police were on his trail and ultimately rescued him.

Toll collectors noticed that the man driving the vehicle was acting strangely and notified Causeway Police of the situation. The collectors noticed that the man appeared to be intoxicated when he paid his fees, so they notified police.

When police were able to catch up to the guy, he parked his car on the bridge and then jumped. Police followed the man into the water and actually saved his life. Police say that the man started to drift and actually went under water for a moment.

Luckily for the guy, police acted quickly and saved his life. The man is still in the hospital, but will be booked with DWI and careless driving charges.
