A 28 year-old woman from Flatbush jumped to her death from the George Washington Bridge on Sunday, officials reported.
It was around 4:15 p.m., when a man driving over the bridge said he saw the unidentified woman jump from the bridge, near the New York Tower, said Joe Pentangelo, a Port Authority Police spokesman.
The man got out of his vehicle and looked over the railing of the bridge down to the Hudson River, some 200 feet below, where he saw the woman's body in the river, Pentangelo said.
Offiers contacted the New York Police Department, whose harbor patrol unit pulled the body from the water, Pentangelo said, adding that the woman was pronounced dead a short time later at Mt. Sinai St. Luke's Hospital in Manhattan
