Police said that a teenager died during a social media stunt at an iconic bridge in Los Angeles, California, early morning Saturday.
Los Angeles Police Department Chief Michel Moore said that officers were called to the scene at the Sixth Street Bridge at about 2 a.m.
Moore said that they found a 17-year-old male who had fallen from one of the arches of the bridge near the 6th Street Viaduct. He was transported to a hospital where he was declared dead.
“He slipped and fell to his death,” said the chief.

He said the teenager was climbing the arch in order to broadcast on social media when he fell. Moore did not say what social media platform the teenager had intended to use.
The identity of the teenager was not released.
The bridge has been the site of police action over a lot of reckless behavior, including illegal street racing and takeovers. In January, a man was shot and killed on the bridge during an unauthorized filming of a music video.
