A man climbed the Sydney Harbour Bridge to draw attention to this marital plight because he was not a “letter writing type of guy”.
Former soldier Michael Fox caused peak-hour chaos when he scaled the Bridge on May 13 last year and unfurled a banner saying “pls help my kids”
Detective Sergeant Andrew Gill yesterday told Downing Centre Local Court he first heard about the incident on a commercial radio station while driving to work.
He later went to North Sydney Police Station to interview the father of three who would only give him information off the record.
“I said, ‘ You put on quite a show, haven’t you?’.”
“He was quite agitated at that and said to me with several expletives involved, ‘You don’t know what it’s like to lose a child’.”
Sgt Gill said he had had a child who had died, which calmed Fox down.
Fox had then confided he desperately wanted access to his children and didn’t know where they were.
