Woman Rescued from River After Jumping From Kennewick Bridge
A woman is receiving crisis assistance after jumping from Kennewick's Cable Bridge early Saturday morning.
Rescue boats arrived shortly after with the Kennewick Fire Department. The woman was rescued as she was held onto a ladder on the pier. The woman was transported to a local hospital where she was checked out and Crisis will be providing further care and assistance. If you have any information about the incident, Kennewick Police ask that you call 509-628-0333. Anonymous tips can also be provided online at: www.kpdtips.com. I'm reminded of another incident where rescue was needed for another victim in crisis. It was a few years ago during Water Follies.
There was a woman perched atop the ledge of the Blue Bridge. I initially thought she wanted the best seat. Of course, action was halted until police and rescue were able to get the woman to safety.
