According eyewitness, the woman, who dressed in blue gown, was trekking and got to the middle of the bridge, climbed the rear and jumped off the bridge.
“It happened so fast that we could not stop her.
However, when she jumped, people called for help, prompting me to dive in and rescued her,” David Johnson explained.
