A man was rescued from the sea in the early hours of Wednesday morning after jumping from Bournemouth Pier.

Emergency services were called to the scene just after 1am but despite negotiations between the man and police officers, he leapt into the water from the railings.

He was then thrown a lifebelt and brought back to shore by a lifeboat where he received medical treatment from paramedics.

The man was later taken to hospital suffering from the effects of exposure.

I'd like to know more about this case. Sounds like a really pathetic suicide attempt or it could be a drunk stag nighter off his trolley on booze, dope and self loathing.

Either way, the pier is shut and locked at that time of night so a fine should ensue.

I saw the man the day before , he put his leg over the side , and then saw me and my friend he brought his leg back over the railing and started walking towards us , he kicked a sign and said "**** off you too" We called two policeman over and pointed him out , he saw them and ran , the police strolled after him and later said he got into a taxi , if the policemen would have made more effort then this might not have happened!
