A couple of off-duty NYPD officers saved a woman from an apparent suicide attempt off of the Brooklyn Bridge early this morning.
Officer Robert Faivre, having just completed his shift, saw the 53-year old woman allegedly climbing toward the edge of the bridge when he stopped to render assistance.
After the woman told Faivre that she intended to jump, the off-duty officer grabbed her and struggled to prevent her from doing so.
As this was occurring, another off-duty officer, Maureen Stefenlli, came to assist.
The woman was taken to a local hospital for treatment and neither officer was hurt.
