Authorities say a man and a woman have died after they plunged from the upper level of the George Washington Bridge into the Hudson River.

Port Authority spokesman Joe Pentangelo says workers on the lower level saw something go past them toward the water around 11:20 a.m. Monday.

Then they looked over the edge and saw two people in the river.

Rescue workers retrieved the pair from the river shortly after noon. They were taken to a Manhattan hospital, but neither survived.

They were not carrying identification. They were believed to be around 40 years old.
