FORT LEE — Port Authority police talked a 40-year-old homeless man down from a rock wall overlooking the George Washington Bridge on Thursday morning, officials said.

Officers responded around 6:30 a.m. and found the man climbing the wall, over the south walkway of the bridge, according to police spokesman Joe Pentangelo. Police believe the man was possibly suicidal.

The Fort Lee Volunteer Ambulance Corps brought the man to Bergen Regional Medical Center for evaluation.

There were no injuries, the spokesman said.
