I asked RIOC what happened at the Pier last night and received this response from their Press Spokesperson earlier today:
Last night (10/25/12) at approximately 9:35pm, PSD responded to an alleged jumper in the East River. NYPD Harbor Unit responded and after a search, deemed it unfounded. Any other questions should be directed to the NYPD.
