NORTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. (AP) - A 28-year-old Rhode Island woman has survived a 135-foot jump from a bridge into Narragansett Bay.

North Kingstown Police Chief Thomas Mulligan tells the Providence Journal (https://bit.ly/1FmbL4P ) the woman from Coventry was rescued by the harbormaster after leaping from the center span of the Jamestown-Verrazzano Bridge on Sunday.

Mulligan says the harbormaster just happened to be in the area when the woman went off the bridge. He says despite the fall, she was able to swim to the harbormaster’s boat.

Her name has not been released. She was taken ashore at the Plum Beach Club and then driven by ambulance to Rhode Island Hospital for treatment.
