‘Distraught’ person led to Port Mann Bridge closure, police say

RCMP say the person was ‘safely apprehended’ and taken to hospital

Police closed the Port Mann Bridge in both directions due to a “distraught” person late Tuesday night.

RCMP say the ordeal ended with one person being taken into custody and that no one was hurt.

A Tuesday night RCMP release said “police responded to a complaint of a person requiring assistance” and “as a result of the complaint, police were required to shut down Highway 1 at both ends of the Port Mann Bridge for the safety of the travelling public.”

According to a release, Surrey RCMP were on scene around 10:22 p.m.

At 11 p.m., police issued another release saying the incident had been resolved but that the bridge would remain closed until the investigation was complete.

Shortly after, DriveBC reported the bridge had re-opened to traffic.

Wednesday morning, Surrey RCMP Corporal Elenore Sturko said police “assisted a distraught person.”

She would not confirm the individual’s gender.

“The person was safely apprehended and transported to hospital,” Sturko added.

Surrey RCMP says they won’t be providing any more details.
