Crews were called to the Fairfax Bridge near Carbonado on Thursday after a body was spotted hanging from the span, Pierce County Sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer said.
A passing motorist saw a rope hanging from the bridge in the 24500 block of state Route 165, and called 911 to report the body, Troyer said. The East Pierce fire union said the body was found about 2:30 p.m.
It appears to be a man, Troyer said.
Detectives were investigating the death, he said.
