NYPD divers rescue woman, 24, who jumped into Brooklyn bay in underwear

NYPD divers jumped into the waters off Brooklyn Wednesday morning when a suicidal woman clad in her underwear went into Upper New York Bay, officials said.

First responders were called to First Ave. near 49th St. in Sunset Park at about 8:30 a.m. after the 24-year-old woman ended up in the water.

As responding firefighters lowered a ladder into the water for the woman to grab hold of, divers from the NYPD’s Emergency Services Unit brought her to a nearby dock.

Medics rushed the woman, who was wearing a blue shirt, pink underwear and socks, to Lutheran Medical Center, where she is expected to survive.
