Couple Dies After Jump From George Washington Bridge

FORT LEE, NJ - JANUARY 09:  The New Jersey side of the George Washington Bridge, which connects Fort Lee, NJ, and New York City, is seen on January 9, 2014 in Fort Lee, New Jersey. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is currently caught in a political scandal, in which one of his aides ordered The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey to purposely cause traffic jams at the on-ramps to the George Washington Bridge in Fort Lee, NJ, due to political disagreements between Governor Christie and the mayor of Fort Lee. Christie claims he had no knowledge of issue and has since fired the aide.  (Photo by Andrew Burton/Getty Images)

A man and a woman were pulled alive from the Hudson River near 125th Street just after noon, the New York Post reports: The woman "washed up" at a pier, while the man was located a short time later. Witnesses say that they saw the pair — believed to be a couple in their 40s or 50s —  jump off the New York side of the George Washington Bridge in what appears to have been a joint suicide. They were brought to St. Luke's Hospital in critical condition; both unfortunately died shortly after arriving.
