(Reuters) - A couple who climbed a suspension bridge to watch the sunrise sparked a major rescue operation when passers-by mistook their stunt for a suicide bid, police said Monday.
A driver called police after seeing a man sitting on top of the bridge and thought the 25-year-old planned to kill himself.
Squad cars, fire engines and a police speedboat with divers rushed to the scene.
"The man and his girlfriend climbed down from the bridge and said sheepishly they had just wanted to watch the sun come up," a police spokesman said. "It looks like they may have to foot the bill for it."
Firefighters put their "rescue" bill at $2,000. Police are still counting, he added.
I'll give the answer at 3pm Central (4pm Eastern, 2pm Mountain, 1pm Pacific).
DO NOT look it up!
