PITTSBURGH —

Emergency crews rescued a woman from a steep hillside beside the Greenfield Bridge Monday morning.

Crews performed a rope rescue to get to the woman, who was about 35 feet down a sloped embankment over the Parkway East, said Pittsburgh EMS Acting Division Chief James Holman.

The woman, whose name hasn’t been released, was conscious when firefighters and paramedics reached her and she didn't appear to have life-threatening injuries. She was taken to UPMC Presbyterian for treatment.

Holman said officials don't know if the woman fell or jumped from the bridge.

“We don't know exactly what her intentions were,” he said.

The incident remains under investigation.
