    The Placer County Sheriff posted this picture of deputies examining where a woman who was trying to take a selfie fell off the bridge.

    A Sacramento-area woman is expected to survive after falling 60 feet off a bridge near Auburn in Placer County.

    The woman was with a group of friends, walking on the catwalk of the Foresthill Bridge — the tallest in California — when she tried taking a selfie and fell.

    The catwalk is closed to the public and illegal to walk on.

    The woman was airlifted to a hospital. The extent of her injuries are unknown at this time.
