A government worker who lost his job dangled for hours from New York’s Tappan Zee bridge Monday until police lowered him to safety.

Michael Davitt, 54, of Garnerville, N.Y., had been angry about losing his job with the Rockland County mental health department, Sheriff James Kralik said.

The man swung from a rope from the midpoint of the bridge, a major crossing north of New York City that connects suburban Westchester and Rockland counties. He was hanging from a harness attached to a rope ladder about halfway between the Hudson River and the bridge roadway. According to CBS affiliate WCBS, the sign partially reads “Rockland Executive Legislature Coverup Retaliation.”
