A Wisconsin mother left her 11-year-old daughter in the car as she jumped to her death off a busy traffic bridge to land on the frozen-over lake below.
Molly Crumley, 48, of River Falls, pulled onto the shoulder of eastbound I-94 on the St. Croix River bridge at around 8.30am on Thursday, during morning rush hour.
According to witnesses, she then exited her vehicle, leaving her young daughter inside, climbed over the railing and threw herself off.
The woman is believed to have died on impact, when she hit the ice-covered lake.
St. Croix County Sheriff's Department recovered her body from the ice using an air boat.
According to the Minnesota Department of Transportation, the bridge is 55 feet above the water at its highest point.
Crumley's 11-year-old daughter, who hasn't been identified, witnesses the horrific tragedy and is now in the care of relatives.
