The San Diego-Coronado Bridge is back open after being closed for much of Sunday morning because a man was threatening to jump.

A caller reported a man wearing a hoodie walking in the No. 2 lane on the westbound side of the bridge just after 6 a.m., according to a California Highway Patrol incident log.

CHP officers moved quickly to shut down the bridge in both directions.

After nearly six hours, police were able to get the man off the bridge safely and take him to a psychiatric hospital, San Diego Police Sgt. Thomas Sullivan said.

The bridge was reopened by about 1 p.m., according to the CHP.
