A 27-year-old man walking home from a Coldplay concert plunged 30 feet to his death after he tried to leap across a gap in a bridge spanning a riverbed, authorities said. Witnesses saw Guillermo Gomez of Alhambra try to jump across a 10-foot gap that separates the westbound and eastbound lanes of Katella Avenue and fall onto a bike path below, said Anaheim Police Sgt. Rick Martinez. Gomez, who had attended the concert Tuesday night with a relative, died less than an hour later at a hospital, Martinez said.
