A young woman who died after jumping off the Arthur Ravenel Bridge on Sunday has been identified as a 20-year-old College of Charleston student.
The Charleston County Coroner's Office identified Alex Kindya after receiving several calls from people who read an article about the jumper in The Post and Courier and suspected it was her. Authorities confirmed the identity late Tuesday, Coroner Rae Wooten said.
Kindya, from Little Silver, N.J., was a sophomore at the college and listed as a member of the school's field hockey team. The school planned to make counseling services available to students, though many had already left campus, as today is the final day of exams.
Witnesses saw Kindya climb over the bridge railing Sunday afternoon and plunge more than 100 feet into the Cooper River, where she drowned. She was wearing a T-shirt, shorts and sneakers and carried no identification.
