A woman is saved after a suicide attempt on the Ocean Springs Bridge earlier this afternoon.

The Ocean Springs Police Department received a call about a woman sitting on the Biloxi Bay Bridge who appeared as if she wanted to jump off. When police arrived to the scene, the woman told them she wanted to end her life. As officers worked to talk her down, the woman tried to jump off the bridge, but was saved when her foot got caught on the railing. It was at that moment officers were able to grab a hold of her and pull her back down to safety.

She’s been transported to the Ocean Springs Hospital for mental evaluation and treatment on her foot.
