Chicago Fire Department officials respond to a person who threatened to jump into the Chicago River at the intersection of State Street and Wacker Drive on Sunday. The Bank of America Shamrock Shuffle had to be rerouted off of State Street, due to this incident. The person was rescued by the time the race started at 8:30 a.m. -- he was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital for psychiatric evaluation.
