Rescue Crews Save Woman who Jumped Off River Road Bridge Above the James River

Emergency crews have rescued a woman after she jumped off the River Road bridge above the James River near Lake Springfield.

The woman says she hurt her back when she hit the water and could not swim back to shore.

First responders took her to a local hospital.

The Logan-Rogersville Fire Protection District responds to several different incidents of people jumping off bridges, or even out of boats.

A spokesman says rescuers advise you don’t try it because the water is so dense, if you jump from high points, a lot of trauma can happen.

There are no swimming signs posted at that spot, but many people choose to ignore them.
