EAST LIVERPOOL - A man and woman kissed before jumping together off the railing of the Newell Bridge into the Ohio River this evening, according to a witness.
Brittany Riddle of East Liverpool was driving across the bridge toward Newell about 6:30 p.m. when she saw a couple on the walkway to her right. Approaching the traffic light on the other side, traffic slowed to a stop. While stationary, Riddle says she looked down to adjust her car radio and was stunned by what happened next.
"I looked up and saw the couple," she said. "They kissed each other, climbed up there [on the rail] and jumped."
As of late Sunday, authorities had not found any bodies.
