Sheriff Dave Brand says a Winona woman fell or jumped from the Interstate bridge in Winona early Friday morning.
Brand said law enforcement was alerted to a woman on the bridge, looking out toward the river just before 8 a.m. The Winona County Dive Rescue Team responded and when officers arrived on scene, a woman was seen floating down the river. By 8:20 a.m., members of the dive team were able to pull the woman’s body from the water about 300 yards from the bridge.
The woman has been identified as a 37-year-old from Winona.
Her body was taken to Mayo Clinic in Rochester for an autopsy.
Her death is under investigation.
