Woman wakes up on 71st Street Bridge 60 feet above the Arkansas River

TULSA, Okla. — Around 10 a.m. Sunday morning, a woman reportedly woke up on the 71st Street Bridge, 60-feet above, two feet deep shallow water.

“I think there was probably some substance abuse involved,” said Andy Little, the Public Information Officer with the Tulsa Fire Department [TFD].

The Tulsa Police Department [TPD] also responded to the scene and shut down the west bound lanes on the bridge.

A boat rescue crew was called out for precaution.

TPD said they were able to get the woman down safely and she was transported to the hospital, reportedly unharmed.

The emergency vehicles then left the location and the the lanes were opened back up for traffic.
