The man who jumped from the Ravenel Bridge to his death Monday afternoon has been identified.

He was Roland Bauer, 45, of Mount Pleasant, according to the Charleston County Coroner's Office. The incident report from Charleston police says he lived on O'Sullivan Drive, which is off Mathis Ferry Road.

Several people called 911 shortly before 2:30 p.m. Monday saying they saw a man jump from the bridge, according to the report.

Police closed the outside lane of the bridge toward Charleston while the body was recovered from the water near the aircraft carrier Yorktown at Patriots Point. The body was brought to land at Remleys Point.
