(Newser) – The woman pulled seriously injured from the Thames following the London terror attack has been identified as 29-year-old Romanian architect Andreea Christea, the Independent reports. She was visiting London with her boyfriend for his birthday Wednesday. Cristea was on the Westminster Bridge when a car drove into pedestrians, according to BuzzFeed News. It's unclear if she jumped into the Thames to escape or was hit by a car and thrown from the bridge. The Telegraph reports she was spotted by witnesses floating face down in the water following the attack. The Port of London Authority says Cristea was pulled from the water soon after the attack. She had serious damage to her lungs and major head injuries, one official says. Cristea remains in the hospital in critical condition, though surgery was said to be "successful."

Meanwhile, the death toll in the attack has risen to four victims after a 75-year-old man was taken off life support Thursday night, NBC News reports. The other victims include a police officer and a man from Utah celebrating his 25th wedding anniversary.
