    LONG BEACH - A woman who was pulled from murky water when her SUV plunged off a bridge into the Los Angeles River remained in critical condition but was showing slight signs of improvements, a hospital official said Monday.

    Lizeth Pimentel is being kept under medical sedation while doctors run more tests, said Daa'iyah Jordan, a St. Mary Medical Center spokeswoman. On Monday, her eyes showed slight signs of movement, giving doctors and family hope that the mother will eventually recover, she said.

    Pimentel suffered severe bruising and swelling of the brain tissue when her SUV plunged off the Seventh Street bridge Thursday morning. Earlier reports said Pimentel was submerged for about 30 minutes as rescuers worked to bring her up. An official timeline is still under investigation, authorities said. Jordan said the hospital plans to release more details on Pimentel's condition in the next few days.
