By Amy Cherry

Wilmington Police and Downtown Visions save a suicidal woman's life.

Police say the woman was preparing to jump off the Washington Street Bridge last night (Thurs. night) when a Downtown Visions ambassador grabbed her.

Officer Sean Nolan was first on-scene and helped pull the woman to safety as she tried to break free from the safety ambassador.

She's been taken to Wilmington Hospital for a psychological evaluation.
