SUPERIOR, Wis. (AP) — Police took a woman into custody for a mental health evaluation after receiving a report that she held her three-year-old child over the edge of a bridge connecting Superior and Duluth, Minn.

Superior police responded to the bridge spanning the Saint Louis Bay about 12:20 a.m. Sunday to investigate the 911 call. They found a 36-year-old Duluth woman sitting in her car on the Blatnik Bridge. Her child was in the back seat.

Officers closed the bridge while they talked to the woman. The Duluth News Tribune says she was taken to St. Luke’s Hospital. The toddler was not hurt and was released to a grandparent.
