Update: At least one person claiming to be a witness wrote us to say: Your article about a man being talked down off a building ledge on Wiltshire Blvd is incorrect. The police were unable to talk him down and the man did jump off the building and was severly injured and was being attended to by fire and rescue.
Three fire engines, an ambulance and 10 or so Los Angeles police department officers responded to the SAG-AFTRA building at 5757 Wilshire Blvd. early Wednesday afternoon. While the police officers would not speak to the press, three building maintenance officer is confirmed that a man had threatened to jump off the top of the building.
