Woman Falls Off Tallest Bridge While Taking Selfie

A woman Fell from one of the tallest bridges in the US while taking a selfie but miraculously survived after landing on a trail below. She fell from the California bridge which is 730 feet above the ground.

The county Sheriff’s officer said,  “The Sacramento-area woman was expected to survive after she fell 60 feet off the restricted area of the Foresthill Bridge near Auburn, California while trying to take a selfie”.Paul Goncharuk, a friend of the woman, told CNN affiliate KOVR that “she was knocked unconscious, suffered a deep gash to her arm and fractured bones that will require surgery.” Paul also confirmed that “they were taking a picture on the bridge, and then the big bolts that are holding the beams together, she stepped on them kind of weirdly and lost balance and fell backwards.”

Police in a California county put out a Facebook post after she fell, warning camera-toting thrill seekers that, “You can lose your life and none of that is worth a selfie!”
She was airlifted to Sutter Roseville Medical Centre for treatment.
The county sheriff office wrote on the Facebook page, “This young lady is very lucky to be alive and the consequences could have been worse for her, her friends and her family.”

The walkways under the bridge were closed to the public, and it was illegal to walk on them. Anyone seen on the catwalks could be cited or arrested if they were found in any closed area.
