FORT LEE, N.J. (AP) - Port Authority Police say two people jumped to their deaths from the George Washington Bridge around the same time in apparently unrelated suicides.

Police spokesman Joe Pentangelo says witnesses saw a man step out of a car in the right lane of the New York-bound lower level at about 4:20 p.m. Wednesday, climb over the rail near the New Jersey tower and jump.

At about the same time, Pentangelo says a man on a bicycle headed toward New York on the bridge’s upper level walkway leaped at mid-span.

Both bodies were recovered.

The dead are identified as 38-year-old Jia Chen of East Rutherford and 21-year-old Nolan Siciensky of Dennis Township.
