A woman has been pulled alive from the River Thames following a terror attack in Westminster.
It is believed she was thrown off Westminster Bridge and into the water when a terrorist ploughed a car into a crowd of pedestrians on Westminster Bridge.
A spokesman for the Port of London Authority said: ‘A female member of the public was recovered from the water near Westminster Bridge. She is alive but undergoing urgent medical treatment on a nearby pier.
‘We believe she fell from the bridge.’
A witness had earlier reported seeing a person in the water, after the car mowed down pedestrians.
One woman was killed in the attack and more were left with ‘catastrophic injuries’, according to a doctor at nearby St Thomas’ hospital.
The car then smashed into railing outside the Palace of Westminster, where the attacker got out and stabbed a police officer.
He was shot as he approached another officer with an eight-inch blade.
Eyewitness Radoslaw Sikorski to the attack on Westminster Bridge said: “I heard what I thought what I thought was just a collision and then I looked through the window of the taxi and someone down, obviously in great distress.
“Then I saw a second person down, and I started filming, then I saw three more people down, one of them bleeding profusely.”
