There is still no word as to what drove a man to drive all the way to the Bloukrans River Bridge where he jumped to his death on Tuesday morning.

The body of the 34-year-old man was recovered by emergency personnel. 

Eastern Cape police spokesperson Sergeant Majola Nkohli said the man, whose identity is known to police, but which would not be released until his next of kin had been informed, had jumped at around 06:00 on Tuesday morning.

Nkoli said the man had driven to the 216-metre high bridge in a silver Volkswagen Amarok and parked on the bridge. 

He said witnesses saw the man jump to his death.
