PARIS, Feb. 4 (UPI) -- A worker at Disneyland Paris allegedly tried to kill himself by jumping off a bridge at the theme park, saying he blamed his manager for his actions.

The man, identified only as "C," stood atop a 33-foot bridge along the route of the park's scale railroad threatening to jump Thursday while concurrently demanding to see Disneyland's management, Radio France Internationale reported Friday.

Le Parisien reported two members of the park's management talked the man into coming down, which he did, witnesses said, with tears in his eyes and blaming his manager for his actions.

Disneyland management said the man was the representative of a small trade union and was working half time because of "problems encountered at work."

Radio France Internationale reported three Disneyland Paris workers killed themselves last year.
