Phuket –

A distressed woman has been rescued after jumping from a bridge in Phuket Town this morning (July 17th).

Kusoldharm rescue workers were notified that a woman had already jumped from the Gor Jan Bridge in the Talad Yai sub-district at 5:35 A.M.

They arrived at the scene to find the Thai woman, aged 31, in a canal near the bridge. The water in the canal was shallow and she was pulled up from the water before being taken to a local hospital.

Her name was withheld per our editorial policy on suicide-related stories. It was not immediately clear what led her to jump from the bridge and she did not answer any questions about the incident.

If you or someone you know is feeling depressed please reach out for help. The Phuket Express suggests the Samaritans of Thailand which can be reached here:
