The San Francisco Main Library was closed Thursday after a person jumped off a balcony inside to the main atrium floor below and was taken to a nearby hospital with life-threatening injuries, according to the San Francisco Police Department.
The incident was reported at 3:43 p.m. at the library, which is located in the Civic Center Plaza in the 100 block of Larkin Street, said police spokesperson Officer Grace Gatpandan.
The gender and age of the individual who leaped was not immediately available.
“It sounds like they were inside, I don’t know how high up,” Gatpandan said.
The library, which normally remains open until 8 p.m. on Thursdays, was expected to remain closed while the incident is under investigation, Gatpandan said.
