We are following a developing story from a parking garage at Ochsner Lafayette General Hospital.

A number of folks on social media reported on Sunday afternoon that a person jumped from a parking garage at the Lafayette hospital.

We reached out to the Lafayette Police Department and they issued the following statement. "We responded to a person in distress.  We were able to de-escalate the incident and the individual is now in the care of a local medical facility."

We will continue to follow this developing story in Lafayette and share any more additional information here as we get it.

Here's one post on social media that many have shared.
