Westchester County police confirmed that a female found in the Hudson River has been pronounced dead after it is believed she jumped from the Bear Mountain Bridge in an apparent suicide late Tuesday afternoon.

After county police responded to a call at 4:26 p.m. of a jumper down, their marine unit located the woman and took her to shore, Lt. Mark Spivak said. Additional sources say she was taken to Peekskill’s Riverfront Green—which was being used as a staging area for emergency personnel—and pronounced dead.

Spivak said no details about the woman have been released as of 6 p.m. pending notification of the family and though signs point to a suicide, the investigation remains ongoing.

  10. I was on my way into work when I was all the fire trucks and police in the bridge. I have never seen anything life it and didn’t want to believe that someone felt so helpless that they needed to end their life. As I passed I wished that I could have helped talk the person out of it and assure them that everything would be okay that they didn’t have to do this. That night at work all I could think about was that poor soul and I did what any person with a heart would do. I prayed for them. I prayed that they were at peace. I’ve lost many friends to suicide and it’s the most emptiest yet indescribable feeling anyone can feel. I wish her family nothing but love and their hearts heal in time. Much love and God Bless always. .

  11. R.I.P. This poor woman found no way out. I pray for her soul and for the family left behind.
