Cruz Roja continues search for Grecia bridge jumper

Cruz Roja rescue workers will resume today their search for a man who is believed to have jumped off a bridge in Grecia Saturday.

The man, identified as a 63-year-old motorist with the last names of Alfaro Alvarado, stopped his vehicle on the bridge and then jumped Saturday morning, the Cruz Roja said. A search has continued since then.

The bridge is the Puente Rafael Iglesias over the Río Colorado, the rescue agency said.  A summary also said that the heavy flow of the river makes conditions difficult and hazardous for those searching the river banks.
