A man was pulled from the Chicago River after he jumped into the water downtown Tuesday evening.
The 26-year-old jumped off a patio on the south side of the Apparel Center -- which houses the Chicago Sun-Times, at 350 N. Orleans -- onto a nearby construction trailer, said Fire Department spokesman Larry Langford. The man then jumped from the construction trailer into the river.
Nearby construction crews threw the man a rope and fire department personnel pulled the man out about 5:50 p.m., Langford said.
He was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in good condition, Langford said.
