Woman Pulled From River Ruled a Suicide

A woman discovered floating face down in the Potomac River near Georgetown Waterfront Park and Washington Harbour June 23 has died. One source familiar with the case called her death a suicide.

According to a D.C. Fire Department spokesman, "Witnesses reported talking to the woman not long before she was seen unconscious in the river. Land units from the water rescue assignment were able to get a line on the victim and brought her to shore … Fire boats 2 and 3 also initiated a grid search to assure there were no other victims."

Found feet from shore, the woman -- identified as 53-year-old Robyn McShay of Maryland -- was given CPR at the scene and then transported to the hospital where she died.
