The jumper was on the overpass by Hicks Street and Congress Street in Brooklyn this weekend. She was threatening to jump off the BQE overpass after climbing over the railing. Officers found her dangling her legs above the expressway at around 10:30 a.m. Sunday morning.
Traffic was shut down in both directions as police responded.
Members of the NYPD Emergency Service Unit and Technical Assistance Response Unit talked her down from the ledge within 15 minutes, cops said.
