AIRVILLE, Pa. (AP) - Authorities say a woman died in a fall from a bridge over the Susquehanna River in Pennsylvania.

Emergency dispatchers in Lancaster County said the woman apparently fell off the Norman Wood Bridge in Lower Chanceford Township at about noon Tuesday and landed onto a pylon.

York County Coroner Pam Gay told the York Daily Record (https://bit.ly/2rJ0zSo ) that the woman’s name wasn’t being released until relatives are notified.

Greg Penny of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation said the bridge is 180 feet high at its highest point, and since the fall occurred on the York County side, she may have fallen from 150 to 180 feet.

PennDOT says the two-lane, 21-span bridge was built in 1968 and carries an average of more than 4,300 vehicles a day.
