Girl survives Golden Gate plunge

A girl of 16 has survived a 200-feet fall from San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge.

She was in the water for 20 minutes before being pulled to safety conscious and responsive, and taken to hospital.

It is not known if she jumped or fell.

About 25 people a year die in jumps from the bridge.

In March, a 17-year-old boy survived after leaping from the bridge.
