Woman becomes 3rd Tappan Zee Bridge suicide in April

A woman plunged 120 feet to her death from the Tappan Zee Bridge, making her the third person this month to commit suicide by leaping from the span.

Police say they responded to an alarm on the bridge about 9:35 p.m. Friday, but the woman was already in the water.

Central Nyack Fire Department officials say the woman parked her car and jumped from the Rockland County-side of the bridge.

Two men died on April 3 after jumping from the bridge within an hour of each other.2die jumping off Tappan Zee in 1-hour span
