DETROIT (WOOD) - The father of a young child who wound up on the piling of the downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan pedestrian bridge says she was never in any danger.
The child is 4 years old.
NBC affiliate WOOD spoke to her father Tuesday. He said he didn't believe his daughter was ever in any danger.
"I'm not going to put my daughter in any harm," said Hans Jansma, the little girl's father. "That's crazy."
