A man died after jumping from the 10th Avenue Bridge in Minneapolis around 9 a.m. Thursday, the Pioneer Press reported.

Police don't believe the man, whose identity has not been released, was a University of Minnesota student, said University of Minnesota police Lt. Dave Wilske.

At least three witnesses on the bridge said they saw the man sitting on the edge of the railing, push his body off the ledge and fall just before 9 a.m., the Minnesota Daily reported.

The man, 54, landed on hard dirt about 100 feet from the water on the east side of the Mississippi River. The man's briefcase found on the bridge indicated he worked at Hennepin County Medical Center.
