A man threatening to jump from the top of a downtown building is talked into backing away from the ledge by police.  It was just after 5:30 Sunday evening when a man was spotted outside the 19th floor of the Trinity Towers building on North Upper Broadway Street.

The Corpus Christi Police Hostage Negotiation Team was called out and was able to get the man to surrender and agree to go to a local hospital for treatment.

CCPD says that the management of the building will review the security and safety plan for the building to prevent something like this from happening in the future.
