A record 18 people committed suicide last year in jumps from the George Washington Bridge, the New York Post reported Monday.
The number of attempted suicides also reached its highest level ever, the article said. Law enforcement sources told the Post 43 attempted suicides were reported in 2012.
Last year's suicides surpassed the 2010 record of 13 deaths, the newspaper reported.
Port Authority officials reportedly beefed up patrols on the bridge following a series of suicides in May.
