MIAMI (AP) - Police say a woman who jumped off the Rickenbacker Causeway's William Powell Bridge may have done so on a dare from friends.

The Miami Herald (http://hrld.us/ZKKf0V ) reports a snorkeler told authorities he saw the woman leap off the bridge about 6 p.m. Sunday. He says the woman landed on her back. She struggled in the water and he swam over to her.

Officials say witnesses heard people encouraging her to jump.

The woman was taken to a hospital for observation, but was in stable condition.

Police say they don't consider the jump a suicide attempt.
