Reports say the woman's tongue stuck outside after she collapsed and passed out on the bridge.

An eyewitness who was at the scene told newsmen:

“The moment she fell on the ground, some people became scared, even as her daughter kept shouting for help. It was when I moved close to her that others joined and poured water on her. By the time they gave her water to drink, her tongue had stuck out.”

Woman confirmed dead

A good Samaritan named Feyisara Oriola who was part of those who took the woman to the hospital disclosed that she was confirmed dead.

She said:

“Her grandchild just gave birth and the baby’s christening is being held today (Tuesday). So, she decided to follow her daughter. Though her daughter refused to bring her along, she insisted on following her. We were told that there was nothing wrong with her before they left home. So, I think it was the stress of climbing the bridge that affected her.”
