SPOKANE, Wash. - Around 11 p.m. Tuesday night, Spokane Police said an intoxicated, suicidal woman was walking onto the street near Monroe and Main, reportedly trying to be hit by a car. 

When police tried to help her, she ran away. She ran down Main over the edge of the river bank about halfway  between the Monroe and Maple Street Bridges.

Three officers followed her down the hillside, and stayed with her until rescue crews were able to reach them and bring the woman to safety just before 1 a.m. on Friday.
