Last updated: 8 months ago
Police officers spotted Colleen Gordon's car parked on the Grace Memorial Bridge. (As an aside, the Grace Memorial Bridge was replaced with the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge in May 2005.) They found her hanging onto a ladder on the side of the bridge and threatening to jump, according to police. As officers tried to persuade her not to jump, she let go and fell about 90 feet to the water below and drowned.
