FL Fatal Fall

A bizarre accident this weekend in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida leaves a police officer dead after he accidentally falls 100 feet off a bridge.

Authorities say 37-year-old Jose Diaz, along with his partner Wilton Minor, had pulled over a motorist on a bridge during a routine traffic stop along Interstate 95.

As Diaz approached the vehicle he stumbled and went over the side of the roadway bridge.

Rescuers were able to recover him and transport him to a local hospital, where he died.
