Police officers were sent to the Washington Street pedestrian bridge that links downtown with the South Side around 12:15 p.m. after someone spotted a person near a bridge railing.

Police attempted to speak with the woman for a few minutes. Officers asked for a mobile crisis unit to respond. As members of the special unit began walking on the bridge from North Shore Drive, the woman plunged into the river.

Police officers and other worked to keep the woman within sight as two city fire department boats were put into the river.

The woman was snagged and lifted into one of the boats before being transported to the north side of the river at the end of Laurel Avenue, nearly a mile west of the bridge. The woman, who was said to be breathing and talking, was taken to the nearby Lourdes Hospital for treatment. No condition report was available from authorities.
