Sunday, between 4:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. 10 – 15 teenagers in bathing suits were seen on Old River Bridge on FM 1409 in Old River-Winfree. They were said to be jumping from the bridge into the water.
Not only is that dangerous because of the debris, logs, junk that has been thrown in from really stupid people, but alligators have been know to hang out under the bridge.
It is against the law as that is a State of Texas Bridge on the State of Texas and the Corps of Engineers waters and land. The Corps of Engineers own 300 ft up from the river on either side.
Have fun this summer, but with all the beaches around us, go there for swimming.
