articleA 17-year-old boy died last weekend after falling from an iconic bridge in Los Angeles and police are saying that the teen was attempting to share his climb up the 6th Street Bridge via social media. The teen fell "when climbing upon one of the arches, in order to post, apparently, a social media broadcast," Los Angeles Police Chief Michel Moore said at a Tuesday's meeting of the Los Angeles Board of Police Commissioners. Moore said that police responded to the fall at the 6th Street Viaduct around 2 a.m. Saturday, May 20 and found the boy, who was pronounced dead at a hospital. His name has not been released by police and police did not share what social media platform he was using prior to his fatal fall.
