Officers from the Port Authority Walkway Patrol saved a woman from jumping off of the George Washington Bridge on Sunday afternoon, preventing the 38-year old New Jersey woman from climbing over the rails.

The incident unfolded after officers noticed the woman, dressed inappropriately for the weather and asking odd questions about the depth of the water below, along the bridge walkway.

After engaging her for some time, the woman allegedly attempted to make a leap for the rails.

Officers were able to convince the woman not to jump and she was taken to a local hospital for evaluation.
