DEVILS LAKE, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Highway Patrol says law enforcement has responded to several reports of people using a highway bridge near Devils Lake as a platform to jump into the water.

Patrol Sgt. Bob Kennedy tells KZZY radio that people are jumping off the Highway 20 bridge south Devils Lake. He says several citizens have called 911 to complain about the bridge jumpers.

Kennedy says it is illegal for pedestrians to be on the bridge - and jumping off of it is dangerous. He says there is “tons and tons of debris” underneath the bridge as the result of construction over the years.
