Police Rescue Teenage Girl After Jump From Bear Mountain Bridge

A Westchester County police marine unit acted quickly Tuesday afternoon, saving the life of a 16-year-old-girl. Police say the teenager jumped off the Bear Mountain Bridge into the Hudson River. The unit happened to be in the area, as they were towing a loose boat back to dock at the U.S. Military Academy…. that’s when they saw the girl, floating face up in the Hudson.

The officers were then able to rescue the girl, according to Lower Hudson News :

“The marine unit found the girl, who lives in Mohegan Lake, semiconscious and floating face-up in the water just south of the bridge. The officers are all trained emergency medical technicians [...] and they stabilized and treated the girl on the way to Riverfront Green Park in Peekskill.”

She was subsequently treated at Westchester Medical center, according to Lower Hudson News.
