A yet to be identified woman has reportedly jumped from the Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos, Nigeria’s commercial city into the lagoon.
According to an eyewitness, the lady came out of a car on the Third Mainland Bridge and jumped into the lagoon at about 6:00 pm on Sunday, June 10, 2018.
A good Samaritan, an eyewitness said, was trying to stop the suicide attempt but it was too late. Another eyewitness said the lady who jumped into the water didn’t come with any vehicle.
Lagos State Police Command however says it is yet to confirm the incident. Though it is unclear what might have prompted her decision, the development is coming a year after a medical doctor identified as Orji jumped from the Third Mainland Bridge into the lagoon and got drowned.
