Jumper on 290 Today

Trying to find news on it but cannot - As we were rolling back into the city today about 1:45 ish, traffic was at a stop and both in and out on 290 were blocked at about Western Ave (I think) - So we rolled the shoulder up to find a kid on the East Side of the overpass (Again, Western Ave I think) had climbed onto the outside of the fence and was hanging over above the El Tracks - IL State Troopers, CPD, CFD and SWAT Team dispatched and letting traffic go through one lane at a time both in and out - They had the CTA stopped as well

If any of you news hounds can find info on this, I would love to know what happened - I hope the kid is alright - Young Black Youth in Shorts, Gym Shoes and no shirt on the OUTSIDE of the fence hangin over the El Tracks - Scary stuff to see in real life

definitely a scary sight but like you i haven't been able to find anything. i have a feeling they won't release anything info so they don't have copy cats.

If it in fact was a jumper I am pretty sure it would have been all over the news they wouldn't keep that quite

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

Well, dude was on the outside of the fence hanging over the El Tracks - They had more "Services" People then a damn parade on the scene - Not sure what it was but it was scary to see
