A few days ago driving back to Kentucky there were ambulance trucks and police cars and people looking over the edge, lAter on the news it said a man parked his truck and jumped off the side, those waters were freezing they said aftet he jumped he popped back up once then went under again an never came back up an still hAvent found the body, does that mean since he came back up once he didn't die instantly, what a horrible suicide in these freezing temperatures,I wonder what was so bad for him ,

Suicide leaves no closure except for the person who commits it.

20 years later I still ask myself why my best friend took his own life!

There were no signs! There was no conflicts in his life that we knew of at the age of 15!

I miss him dearly and know that his mother died of a broken heart! I still dream about him and each time I do...I am one step away from pulling the gun out of his hand......

My prayers and condolances to this man'sfamily and friends!

As a near drowning victim it is a horrible way to die!! A leap from that high I am sure contributed to him going back under! He most certainly died from the jump with internal injuries....but whose to know really.

There will always be questions that none of us will ever know the answers to! I am sadden to know that he did come back up and noone could help him. And that he thought this was the only out he had to his problems.

May he Rest In Peace!
Well

Wish that when someone feels that way they could understand that any of us, with exception of people like "well" would do anything to help them. It is a permenant solution to a temporary problem and the people that care never get over the loss. The people that care have to spend the rest of their lives wondering where they failed someone they loved.

I feel for all involved and hope that whoever "well" is never finds out how the people involved suffered.

I'm assuming the poster "well" is referring to the woman that jumped off the same bridge a few years ago attempting to commit suicide and LIVED.
not exactly

I agree with you for the most part, but it's very doubtful that he would have died from just the jump its self. If the temperatures wasn't blowing freezing and he would have jumped say during the middle of summer he would have most likely lived. If he didn't land on any stump or anything else that could have caused him injury of course.

At 16 I jumped off a bridge, not looking to die, but just young and dumb and it was a dare. The bridge I jumped from was over 120 feet above the water. I had a small black eye and was a little sore, but none the less far from death.

Regardless though, suicide is horrible and you're right it hurts only the family in the end. I'll be praying for the family of this person.

I stumbled on this by complete accident I was searching Google to find out how long it takes a person to die from jumping in a lake. The man that jumped that terribly cold day was my brother Allen Holloman he was a good man a hard working man,he even served in the military. He like most of us had demons. He didn't reach out to anyone. I believe he had been planning this for some time. It hurts me to the very core of my being that he didn't feel like he could reach out to his family for help. He left a suicide note that was full of so much hopelessness. He had given up on life and could see no other way out from the pain that he was feeling, he believed that once he was dead the demons would be quiet and the pain he felt would be gone forever. This I just can not understand. I often ask myself why he forgot about God why didn't he cry to Him for help. I know that he suffers no more but still can not help but being angry at him for giving up for his selfishness by not thinking about those he would be leaving behind. He is the first born in our family and to me he was the rock in our family, I looked up to him so much I wish I would of made sure he knew how I felt. Since he has been gone my mother has not been the same. She feel into a depression then later that year was diagnosed with Cancer. The two of them were close and it has been so hard for her to deal with his death because he didn't talk to her about the torment he was going through. Any way I feel like I'm beginning to ramble. All I know is that our family has forever been changed by his suicide. His body has not been found and my mother may die without ever having closure. Suicide to me is just not the answer. I struggle every day but I manage to push forward. I feel for anyone that loses hope because without hope what do you do?
Thank you

I'm sorry for your loss. I heard about this a long time ago. I looked him up on fb. He seemed like a great guy. Prayers for you and your family throughout the Holidays.

It means most people know the bridge isn't quite high enough to kill you if you jump.
