Rescue workers in Phuket have successfully rescued a distressed woman who jumped from a bridge in the Old Town area of the island (in Phuket Town). According to a Phuket Express report, the woman jumped from the Gor Jan Bridge in the sub-district of Talad Yai around 5.30am yesterday.

Workers from the Kusoldharm Foundation arrived at the scene where the 31 year old unnamed woman had jumped from a bridge into the canal below. It’s understood the water in the area was shallow and rescuers were able to pull her out and transport her to a local hospital. The motive for the woman’s action is not known.

If you or someone you know is in emotional distress, you can contact the Samaritans of Thailand on their 24-hour hotline: 02 713 6791 (English) or 02 713 6793 (Thai).
