The youth was travelling along with his friend towards Mangaluru in a three-wheeler tempo at 2 pm in the afternoon. As the tempo was crossing the bridge, Naufal informed his friend that he was feeling nauseated and requested him to stop the vehicle. When the vehicle stopped, Naufal got out of the vehicle and jumped into the river. When people amassed to see what had happen, they found Naufal sitting on the slab of the pillar supporting the bridge! This incident also attracted a huge crowd of onlookers on the bridge.

The city south traffic inspector Gurudatta Kamath was at the location and was able to pull up Naufal from the slab with assistance from the gathered public. The victim was later handed over to Kankanady city police station.
