ST. PETERSBURG -- The U.S. Coast Guard recovered the body of a man who jumped off the Sunshine Skyway bridge early Sunday morning.
Hillsborough County Sheriff's officials said a witness saw the man on the bridge at 5:20 a.m., just before he jumped. The Coast Guard was called and retrieved the body about 6 a.m.
Authorities did not release the man's name, pending notification of his relatives.
It was the second Skyway suicide in less than a week. Another man jumped off the bridge Wednesday, and was found Saturday.
