Haha, that bridge is not high enough to really be killed from jumping. My uncles used to jump off of there for fun when I was a kid and we would be visiting friends out there.

Sometimes the ATTEMPT is a cry for help.

You people have no clue.

Good for that student and cop to be in the right place at the right time.

He did'nt do his thing the right way, he forgot to tie a cider block to his foot. Death sounds pretty good these days however I'll just wait for Grim to come along.
