A 16-year-old boy Monday became the 20th known person to survive the 220-foot leap or fall from the Golden Gate Bridge.

The teenager, who authorities said did not speak English and carried no identification with him, jumped shortly before noon from near the bridge's South Tower.

A Coast Guard rescue crew found him in the chilly waters of San Francisco Bay about 25 minutes later. He was treading water and "looked in pretty good shape," said Coast Guard Senior Chief Barry Kevan.

The youth remained conscious while an ambulance took him to Letterman Hospital in the nearby Presidio.

A total of 852 people are known to have committed suicide by jumping off the 51-year-old span.
