Suicide. She jumped from the catwalk on the underside of the bridge. It was her second attempt! The bridge deck is 30 feet wide and only two lanes - ample room to walk across atop the bridge IMHO. Photo below is from a visit to the very same bridge / catwalk several years ago.
AIRVILLE, Pa. (AP) — A coroner says a Pennsylvania woman died after twice jumping from the same bridge.
York County Coroner Pam Gay has yet to release the name of the 25-year-old woman who died about noon Tuesday. Gay has ruled the death a suicide.
Gay says witnesses saw the woman jump from a catwalk beneath the Norman Wood Bridge in Lower Chanceford Township and land on a sandy area about 20 feet below. The woman told the witnesses she was OK before climbing back onto the catwalk beneath the bridge and walking farther out over the Susquehanna River.
The coroner says that's where the woman jumped again, this time landing on some rocks near a bridge pier more than 100 feet below.
The two-lane, 21-span bridge connects York and Lancaster counties.
50 ton Crane vs 2 ton posted bridge makes for the highest ratio of load to limit I'm aware of... 25:1
It is not in Wisconsin. It is the Dingman's Ferry Bridge spanning the Delaware River connecting Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
The 11' height sign, blinking yellow lights, and no pedestrian signs on the guardrail ends match the Google Drive By (may have to scroll around as this is a very narrow view between traffic).
