The story surrounding an apparent Tappan Zee Bridge suicide remains under investigation, but police Thursday morning revealed the name of the latest bridge jumper.
Anna Krasnowski, 24, of New Britain, CT jumped around 5 p.m. on Wednesday after pulling over her Nissan one-quarter-mile onto the northbound side of the Tappan Zee Bridge, reported State Police Investigator Joseph Becerra.
Onlookers, including one woman from Nyack who chillingly recounted what she saw, could not come to Krasnowski's rescue soon enough.
"Before anyone could get out of their cars to pull her off the fence, she was over," witness Christina Place said. "Clearly she had an intent."
In the water, Nyack rescue divers were able to pull up the woman within 15 minutes of the mid-span jump, but by 5:40 p.m. at Phelps Memorial Hospital, Krasnowski was pronounced dead.
Becerra said the case is still under investigation and he could not reveal any more about Krasnowski.
A Facebook page that appears to be hers, under the name "Ania (Anna) Krasnowski," lists her as attending Tunxis Community College in CT. The page was last updated several months ago and has only a photo of a sunset.
