This is video of a Pittsburgh Pirates fan, who jumped off the Roberto Clemente Bridge on Tuesday night, after his favorite team defeated the Cincinnati Reds, 6-2, in the National League Wild-Card game at PNC Park in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

The fan, who is identified by Yahoo! Sports as Dean Pasztor, of Ohio, let is be known on his Twitter account that he was fine.

I guess he had a right to be a little excited, since it was the first win in the postseason for the Pirates since 1992.

The Roberto Clemente Bridge, named after the former Pirates’ Hall of Fame outfielder, is also known as the Sixth Street Bridge, and is is located outside of PNC Park. It spans the Allegheny River, is closed to vehicular traffic on game days, and has a drop of approximately 78 feet, which is how fell Pasztor is estimated to have fallen into the water below.
