Police responded about 7:53 a.m. when Sung Hong, 26, was spotted in the water near the base of the bridge. Franklin County Coroner Dan Blasdel said he apparently intentionally jumped from the bridge.
Pasco emergency crews responded with a rescue boat and tried to revive Hong. He was taken to Lourdes Medical Center in Pasco where he was pronounced dead.
