He will move on from this and will do something positive with his life.

Whatever the reason why he jumped are not important now. God gave him a second chance. Let's hope he makes something positive with it.

It was not his time for departure and not his exit. Even if he wanted that really bad.

I don't know how anyone even tries anything like this. There's ALWAYS a chance you will not die from stuff like this. I know of someone who shot himself in the head in attempt to kill himself--- and lived for a week. What seemed like a quick end turned into a slow, painful death.
I wish some people didn't feel like they ever need to take their own lives.

When it's not your time it's not your time. The man upstairs has more work for that young man to do.

What is so tragic in a young boys life that he wants to take his own life? This is God's way of giving him a second chance at life. And I hope he opens his heart to a new beginning.

Many people, especially young people, have to deal with so many failures in life. Failed relationships, failed jobs, money issues. There is so much rejection to deal with in life and for many, it can be overwhelming. It's how you rebound from rejection that makes you stronger.

What if he is crippled? I'd think he'd want to jump/roll again.
