British woman “high on drugs” saved from motorway plunge
A British woman believed to be high on drugs has been saved from jumping off a motor-way bridge in Ibiza.
The 26-year-old tourist was spotted by a police officer and passer-by as she clung on to the railings by her fingertips.
“Her body was already over the side,” said a spokesman for the Civil Guard.
The woman, who was rushed to hospital, was said to be “suffering a psychotic episode as a result of excessive consumption of drugs.”
The drama happened at 8am in the morning on a pedestrian bridge over the motorway to the aiport and near the Can Sifre.
She was first spotted dangling from the bridge by a passer-by who was helped in the rescue by a member of the Civil Guard.
The woman was apparently shouting in English that “she wanted to die” and also pleaded with the two men to “kill her”.
Her rescuers were able to grab her legs and pull her to safety before calling in the emergency services.
The woman was then taken by ambulance to the Can Misses hospital in Ibiza where she is said to be making a good recovery.
The incident follows the discovery of a completely naked British man running around the centre of San Antonio at 9pm.
He had to be handcuffed by police because of his “very aggressive” behaviour and was also taken to hospital.
Police said he too was under the influence of drugs. What type was not specified but it is known that the designer drug Flakka produces irrational and aggres-sive behaviour which is difficult to control.
