Tragic! Uber Passenger Jumps Into Lagos Lagoon From Third Mainland Bridge

An Uber passenger on Saturday, February 15, jumped into the Lagoon around the Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos State.

According to The Punch, the man had boarded a car-hailing service, Uber, from Gbagada to a destination in the state.
While the driver was commuting him to his destination, The PUNCH gathered that the passenger told the driver to park on the Third Mainland Bridge because he had a stomach ache.
After parking, the yet-to-be-identified man disembarked from the vehicle and jumped into the ocean around 11 am.
The Public Relations Officer, Lagos State Emergency Management Authority, Nosa Okunbor, confirmed the incident, saying that rescue operation was ongoing.
He said, “The guy boarded Uber from Gbagada and when they got to the Third Mainland Bridge, he told the driver that he had stomach upset and that he needed to relieve himself. So when the driver parked, he got down from the vehicle, abandoned his belongings and jumped into the water.
“The incident happened around 11 am and our team has responded but I can’t confirm if he would be rescued alive or dead.”
