Brooklyn Bridge jumper survives without scratch

A despondent woman bent on suicide not only survived a 10-story leap from the Brooklyn Bridge Monday - she was barely scratched.

The woman was quickly plucked from the chilly East River waters by an NYPD Harbor Unit about 11 a.m. after several witnesses called 911, police said.


"She's alive - no broken bones or anything," marveled a police source.


The 34-year-old woman was conscious as FDNY paramedics took her to Bellevue Hospital, where she was admitted for having water in her lungs.
