Does anyone know what happened? I was stuck in traffic for almost two hours... I was told there was an attempted jumper, but I was curious if anyone had more info?

From a couple of Facebook postings I received, there was a jumper, but he/she was talked down.

I was only taking a leak of the bridge.
That water sure was cold.
It was deep too.

for you CWN...you obviously have no heart and there is something not working in your head. the attempted jumper was my best friend, he is like family to me. i ended up talking him down, and now he is getting the help he needs. and for everyone else cracking jokes about it, just quit. its immature and not necessary. please keep him and his family in your prayers.

The kids already going thru a hard enough time. I doubt posting his name on topix would do any good. Lets agree to let it rest.

yeah his name does not need to be posted for everyone to see. i just want everyone to know that he is getting the help he needs. hes a really good person, one of the nicest people i know. and if people really are that upset that they had to sit in traffic for an hour or 2...just imagine that was your kid. you dont know what he was going through.

I wish it had been the "real" a-non on the bridge. But he would not have left his mommy

. Well, I'm glad to disappoint you, anything else I can do to ruin your day? Shouldn't you be with the jv's 7, working on the master plan? Or are you not a member of the bashers and morons team of excellence?

I am a moron and have nothing to do. Someone someday will throw me off the bridge. I have no friends and can't even comment on a post without a few people turning the post into an attack on me. Someone give me a rope and I will hang myself with the rest of the "brothas"

What does wishing ill will upon a person you don't even know, benefit you? Does the guy that posts all the time REALLY mean so much to you that you would want him to really jump off a bridge. Get over the whole A-non hate and worry about yourself. You people that post EVERY TIME after he does are JUST as annoy (actually much more) and your posts are idiotic.

Well, Mr. jumper cost me 2 and half hours and a half a tank of gas, ultimately having to drive back downtown and cross Poplar to get home. Next time he wants to jump we have some beautiful bluffs on this side of the river. No one will bother him and he won't impact literally thousands of motorists and risk their lives

I feel if your going to commit suicide, you will just do it! Not stand on the side of a bridge for hours... or say you will! Most people that "say" they are going to, are just wanting attention! Their intentions were never to do so! Which IS obviously a problem! Usually it's to receive attention that they don't receive in their life. I hope that person does get the help, he obviously needs! I do pray for his family... I'm sure this was extremely scary for them...

So wouldn't it be more beneficial if I just left the Columbia and Waterloo Topix forums and got a life? Wouldn't all the rest of them leave, if I left? GEEZ, be smarter than me. I don't have any friends and sit in a basement all day, licking my mom's vag and posting on Topix. Just because I log out and make myself GEEZ, doesn't mean it's not the same person posting.
