Mum jumps 330ft to her death from bridge with son, 10, 'after being made homeless'

This is the shocking moment a young mum jumped from a bridge with her 10-year-old son in her arms as the emergency services tried to talk her down.
The incident took place on the La Variante Bridge in the community of Ibague in the central-western Colombian area of Tolima.
The woman, identified as 32-year-old Jessy Paola Moreno Cruz, was holding her son May Ceballos on the edge of the bridge while threatening to jump as the emergency services begged with her not to.
However, she ignored their pleas and jumped from the 100-metre (330-foot) bridge, killing them both.
In the clip, a rescuer is heard saying: "Oh my God, she threw herself off" as another emergency service worker breaks down in shock.
Firefighter Rafel Rico told local media: "They begged her not to do it and tried to convince her to stop but sadly she took the fatal decision."
Rico added that the local authorities are still searching the area for their bodies.
According to local media, Jessy Paola Moreno Cruz had financial problems and had recently been evicted from her home.
Ibague mayor Guillermo Alfonso Jaramillo told local media: "The incident has a lot to do with the terrible situation we are facing in Ibague and all over Colombia."
According to local media, Moreno Cruz and her child were homeless after being forced out of her home and she did not have enough money for rent.
The investigation continues.
