Call it a holiday miracle: a distraught 22-year-old woman survived a leap from the Brooklyn Bridge into the freezing East River below.
NYPD divers were dispatched to the waters beneath the span at 7 a.m. on December 19 after stunned witnesses reported the attempted suicide.
When they hit the water, they found the woman %u2013 who was clad in her pajamas %u2013 conscious and treading water.
The woman was rushed to Bellevue Hospital in stable condition, but suffering from hypothermia, officials said.
