So sad

I read an article some while ago about people who have jumped off the Golden Gate bridge. By freak circumstance, a small number have survived. Universally, they report having realized on the way down what a huge mistake it was.

RIP

All the best to the family and friends.

I wish they could rename that street, too.

On foot?

How could a pedestrian get that far on the bridge without getting hit by a car or truck? Jumping could have been plan B. Condolences to family and friends. I lost a friend to suicide on Feb. 23, and it left so many friends with unanswered questions, frustration, and loss.

The people committing suicide

The people committing suicide usually pull over and quickly jump before anyone reports a disabled vehicle.

Why Route 9 Samaritans sign

Kind of related...

On Route 9, in Southboro, there's a Samaritans/suicide hotline sign at Breakneck Hill Road, where there's a causeway about 10 feet from the reservoir. Why?

Is this a site where people jump, and if so, how does 10 feet from causeway to water do it?
