SEATTLE - Good Samaritans helped save a suicidal woman who jumped off the 520 bridge into Lake Washington on New Year's Day.

Washington State Department of Transportation cameras caught the woman from North Dakota jumping into the water. Other drivers immediately pulled over to help and one threw her a rope. A ski boater then raced over, pulled her from the water and covered her with a blanket until a police boat arrived.

The 55-year-old woman was taken to the hospital for evaluation.
