Teen bridge jumper injured

TWEED paramedics have warned people to consider the consequences of jumping from bridges after they were called to treat a 14-year-old girl for chest and suspected spinal injuries yesterday.

The girl jumped from Terranora Bridge on the Pacific Motorway into Terranora Creek about 5pm (NSW).

Paramedics transported the girl to Tweed Hospital.

NSW Ambulance Service duty operations manager for the Tweed Valley Tony Stanford said people should not be jumping from height into water.

"There are a lot of safer places to engage in water activities," Mr Stanford said.
