California man falls off Bay bridge after allegedly attempting to throw wife over

Xavier McClinton, 47, was driving over the San Mateo-Hayward Bridge when witnesses say he grabbed his wife and attempted to throw her over the edge. Good Samaritans were able to save the woman but McClinton plunged 15 feet. He was rescued by the Coast Guard.

A California man who plunged from a San Francisco Bay bridge was trying to throw his wife off when he went over instead, according to a prosecutor.

Authorities say Xavier McClinton, 47, of Mill Valley, was driving over the San Mateo-Hayward Bridge with his wife of eight years when he violently began crashing his car in an attempt to go over the edge, NBC reports.

When the vehicle hit a barrier and could go no further, McClinton allegedly grabbed the mother of his three children and forcefully pulled her out of the car.

His wife, identified as Nadia McClinton, was then narrowly tossed over the edge when Good Samaritans were able to grab her legs and hold on.

McClinton, however, went over, falling about 15 feet into the water.

He was rescued by the U.S. Coast Guard and arraigned on one felony count each of attempted murder and domestic violence.
