“A young lady attempted Su¡cide about two hours ago, jumping from the Oghara-Benin bridge into the river,” he said.
“I, in the company of my friend Jay Cee were returning from Benin when we saw someone jump from that high bridge into the river. We had to park on top of the bridge and raise an alarm.
“Fortunately there were some locals under the bridge that ran into the river heading straight down at the point she fell into.
“We also called the DPO Oghara CSP Hassan who mobilised men to the scene almost immediately. She was rescued and has been rushed to the Oghara Teaching Hospital.
“We do not know the reasons for her actions but gathered that she is a student of the Delta State Polytechnic Otefe, Oghara. The DPO and his team along with some federal hunters rushed her to the hospital.”
