Fall From Bridge Kills Teen

A teen is dead after falling nearly 200 feet from a bridge in southern Jessamine County. It happened around 4:30p.m. Thursday at the High Bridge.

Officials say four teens were hanging out there when Timmy Williams, 18, lost his footing and slipped.

County fire crews had to use ropes to repel down to Williams. They got to him just after five, but he was apparently dead from his injuries.
Officials say foul play is not suspected.

Williams graduated from East Jessamine High School in May 2007.
