A photoshoot for Vanity Fair featuring Lena Dunham was delayed after a man jumped off the Brooklyn Bridge and plummeted to his death. The man, according to The New York Post, jumped after hanging onto one of the bridge’s towers for about 40 minutes. He landed on the River Cafe, which was closed due to damage from Hurricane Sandy.
Annie Leibovitz was scheduled to take photos of Dunham near the restaurant, but had to put the session on pause while police cleared the scene and completed their investigation.
Sources told the Post that Leibovitz and her team “respectfully waited” for the cops to finish, as if that was a surprising way to deal with the situation. The shoot was completed several hours later.
