A woman survived after jumping off a cliff in San Pedro this morning in an apparent suicide attempt.

Police were called to the scene by the distraught husband of the 51-year-old woman around 11:30 am, according to The Daily Breeze. The woman's husband said he was worried about her going to White Point in San Pedro to commit suicide. When police arrived, they found her at the cliff's edge. They tried to lure her away from the edge, and they seemed to be making progress but then she turned around and jumped.

Topography seemed to be on her side.

"Fortunately it's more sloped there and not a straight fall," Los Angeles police Lt. John Pasquariello told The Daily Breeze. "She basically tumbled down the hillside and ended up on the shoreline."
