A person died after falling along the I-5 exit to Union in downtown Seattle Thursday morning.
According to emergency radio updates, the person was found face down along the freeway exit just before 6:30 AM. Seattle Fire found citizens attempting to revive the victim who was declared dead at the scene.
Though the person was found in an area that has seen accidental falls as people attempt to enter encampment areas along I-5 near the convention center, CHS is told that investigators determined the person intentionally jumped in a suicide attempt.
