WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Firefighters rescued a man who jumped from MLK Parkway into the marsh below. MLK was shutdown heading out of downtown for more than an hour as they worked.

A New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office spokesman says a deputy stopped to check on a possible broken down vehicle on the side of MLK near the McRae Street exit around 9 a.m. When the deputy pulled over, there was no one in the vehicle. When she walked around, she looked down and saw a man in the marsh.

A Wilmington Fire Department spokesman says the man tried to commit suicide by jumping, but failed. Investigators are still trying to figure out how he fell or if he jumped.

You know what’s truly funny?

The anger, insults, name-calling, and general ill-will emanating from all you “compassionate people” at two guys who simply choose to disagree with your mamby-pamby, “oooh the poor baby” coddling view.

“Be compassionate or karma’s gonna getcha!”

*You’re not compassionate – you should be in a nuthouse!”

“You’re a Nazi!”

“You’re a clown!”

“You’re stupid!”

Look, I freely admit that I’m discompassionate and cold but you guys need to admit that you are like Barney on a ‘roid rage. “Love your fellow man, or we’ll beat you bloody.”

I hope I didn’t make any of you kind, gentle souls cry by pointing out that dichotomy….

Again, more proof of how off balance you are. You are a waste of time and should stop commenting. You make yourself look worse with every word you type. Do yourself a favor and stay out of serious matters.

I totally agree with you, Guest 111. The more people respond to him, the ruder and more insensitive he becomes. It’s a control issue. Some people just like to keep stirring the pot because they like being the center of attention.

It was actually this “they’re” used in her/his context,
so if you want to correct someone make sure you know the correct meaning first.

I am just in shock at what you heartless people have to say. I hope Karma comes around and bites each and every one of you cold hearted people in the butt. It is sad that there are more negative comments than positive ones.
