The woman had climbed over the railing, slid down under some fencing and was clinging to the edge of the bridge. Port police and California Highway Patrol officers were working to pull her to safety when officers with the Los Angeles Police Department arrived.
Officers were eventually able to hoist the woman back onto the bridge deck and get her the help she needed.
