A man was arrested in New York City on Monday and accused of jumping into a reflecting pool at the 9/11 Memorial, police said.
The incident unfolded at about 1:30 p.m. ET, when police were called to the north pool at the 9/11 Memorial and found the 33-year-old man had jumped in, police said.
He was taken to Bellevue Hospital for the non-life-threatening injuries, and charges are pending, officials said.
The man was described as an “apparently emotionally disturbed person,” a Port Authority spokesperson said.
Later, security guards were spotted erecting chains around the pool to discourage anyone else from jumping in.
