Trooper pulls despondent woman to safety in Tacoma
Trooper Guy Gill said while the officer was pulling her back over the barrier Thursday afternoon, she asked him to let her go because she wanted to jump.
The 24-year-old Tacoma woman had self-inflicted cuts on her wrists and stomach. Gill said medical personnel took her to a hospital for treatment.
Troopers had swarmed an area near the Tacoma Dome after their dispatch office got a phone call about a suicidal woman on an overpass.
"This young woman was going through some very hard times and had every intention of carrying out her plan," Gill said.
