That is one heck of a popular bridge to suicide from - I think there has been at least 3 jumpers in my very recent memory.
I wonder if it is rivaling the Golden Gate for the deaths?

I saw a program recently about the feet in sneakers/ running shoes washing up on shore. Pretty certain that they came from suiciders. The feet break off on impact, apparently. I thought I should let you know that if you are sad and depressed, that's what happens. Don't do it. You'll break your feet off.

Fano: Maybe that's why they survive. Their body has ways to shut that down.


Ouch. That allegory hurt as much as hitting the water at terminal velocity. :)

hardinparamedic: tb tibbles: One GG Bridge suicide that stuck in my mind was a local talk show host who got into a series of bad investments, then turned to counterfeiting a famous ball player's jersey in order to recoup. He somehow knew he was busted and did his swan dive. The station ran a benefit for his widow who was left saddled his money problems.

Not good. And from what survivors have testified, hitting the water from 200 ft elevation deck is painful.

One thing I've always heard from survivors of bridge dives is that the moment they're falling, they suddenly have the epiphany that things weren't worth dying over, and that they regret ever taking that step off.


So for those that jump, and change their mind on the way down, is there anything they can do to increase the chance of surviving? Feet first? Head first? Cannonball?

abhorrent1: The circumstances that led to her being found in the Hudson River a month later remain under investigation.

Let me clear that part up for you.
Someone saw a body floating in the river.

/investigation closed


But that hasn't stopped all the conversation up on Choctaw Ridge

She believed she could fly.
She believed she could touch the sky.
She thought about it every day.
Slipped her bonds and flew away.
She spread her wings and soared.
Took a leap off that bridge railing.
She believed she could fly.
She believed she could fly.
Splat.
