SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - A 16-year-old girl survived a fall from the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, authorities said on Monday.

The teen was found "conscious and responsive" beneath the suspension bridge at about 11:15 a.m. on Sunday, a U.S. Coast Guard spokesman said.

It was not immediately clear if the girl, who was not identified, jumped or fell from the bridge.
