The news of a medical doctor who took his own life by jumping into the Lagos lagoon along the Adeniji Adele axis is yet to settled when an unidentified woman jumped into the lagoon, in the Maza-Maza area of Lagos.
The woman jumped into the lagoon from Maza-Maza Bridge in the Mile 2 area to the shock of people around. The woman was however, lucky, as rescuers fished her out before it was late.
According to a witness, the woman, dressed in a blouse and trousers, was trekking and got to the middle of the bridge, climbed the rail and jumped.
“The thing happened so fast that we could not stop her. However, when she jumped, we called for help, prompting people under the bridge to dive in and rescue her,” said one of the witnesses, who gave his name as Emeka.
When Daily Sun got to the scene, the woman was lying unconscious by the shore of the lagoon, while her rescuers tried to press her bloated stomach to expel the excess water she took in before her rescue.
Adewale, one of those who rescued her, said: “We were under the bridge, when suddenly the woman’s body dropped from the bridge. At first, we thought she was either pushed over or fell over by mistake. We had to jump into the river and went for her. That was how we rescued her.”
