Gay says witnesses saw the woman jump from a catwalk beneath the Norman Wood Bridge in Lower Chanceford Township and land on a sandy area about 20 feet below. The woman told the witnesses she was OK before climbing back onto the catwalk beneath the bridge and walking farther out over the Susquehanna River.

The coroner says that’s where the woman jumped again, this time landing on some rocks near a bridge pier more than 100 feet below.
