Tony Scott's tragic jump off the Vincent Thomas Bridge in Los Angeles County was reportedly witnessed by a group of passengers on a harbor cruise. According to TMZ, some of those passengers took photos and shot video.
One of the harbor cruise passengers told TMZ that Scott, the famed Hollywood film director responsible for movies such as "Top Gun" and "Beverly Hills Cop II," landed right next to their tour boat and that most of them witnessed the whole thing.
Scott, 68, is the brother of director and producer Ridley Scott. He jumped from the Vincent Thomas Bridge spanning San Pedro and Terminal Island in Los Angeles Harbor around 12:30 p.m. on Sunday.
A U.S. Coast Guard lieutenant told TMZ that a suicide note was found in Scott's Toyota Prius, which was parked on one of the eastbound lanes of the bridge. Details of the letter have not been released.
According to Thirty Mile Zone, authorities used sonar equipment to find Scott's body in the port's murky waters. His body was recovered at around 4:30 p.m., roughly four hours after he jumped.
