I work right around the corner from where the woman is, she seemed to be in her 20's early 30's, wearing a grey hoodie and she was also drinking. she seemed very nervous from my vantage point. people were stopping to see what was going on.

Karen from Streamwood- may karma come back and haunt you. You should be blessed and thankful if you have people if your life that give a shit about you. Maybe this person has no family...no one to go to...it's people like you, that are contributing to the selfish, back stabbing world we live in. Rethink your comment. I hope one day one of your loved ones isn't trying to commit suicide and someone tells them to do it.

People like you are absolutely ridiculous.You should be ashamed if yourself.

Holy hell guys! You really want her to jump? Or to do it in a manner that doesn't interfere with traffic? Now I wonder who REALLY needs help!

Anything bad that you say about others is only a reflection of you. You talk bad about people to make your self feel better. The reality is that you do not know what this person is going through and your comments are absolutely disappointing and hurtful.

Think about what you say before you write or better yet grow up.

If you are going to make a chaos and delay hundreds of people on their way to and from work, you might as well jump now!
The life you are going to face after the pull you down isn't going to be any less stressful nor pleasant.
Your 15 minutes fame is over, and soon you will be forgotten, except by the ones who decide to go and fight your a** in court later.

This is unreal. The majority of those who have posted in response to this article have a terrible outlook and maintain no respect for life. It's no wonder there's so much violence with attitudes such as yours.

Relax there, Clarence. Let me spell it out for you S-A-R-C-A-S-M. She probably was just runnning from the cops for talking on her cell phone while crossing the street (for those of you who have read the latest Jessie White proposed law).

I was stuck in that traffic and about 15 cars away from the scene of the incident. I was on my way to a manditory rehearsal at CSO, canceled a full day of voice students to get there on time, and ended up 10 minutes late to the rehearsal because of this woman. All the cars had completely stopped and most everyone was out of their cars in the middle of the road checking out the scene. I couldn't believe it when I saw her sitting there waiting to jump. I thought, "what if she fell in front of my car?" Even on the scene people were saying that they wished she would hurry up and jump so they could get to where they had to go. She had a jump bag below her and someone trying to coax her away. She was obviously foiled, yet she still had to hold up traffic for an hour. I'm sympathetic to her horrible state of mind, but I can't say I wasn't angry at the time. I do hope she's well taken care of now, and gets better.
