Teen Survives Fall From Golden Gate Bridge

A teenage girl survived a fall from the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco Sunday, making her only the second teenager to live after falling from the bridge.

It is not known whether the 16-year-old jumped or fell from the bridge, ABC News reported.

The Coast Guard pulled the conscious girl from the water and onto the shore and the San Francisco Fire Department took her to Marin General Hospital where she is recovering.

About 25 people die every year from jumping off of the Golden Gate Bridge, BBC News reported.
