He will probably sue, because there were no signs that said you make break bones if you jump from here. I think the death penaly is in play here,
too dumb to keep around.

I knew someone who jumped off the Lake Street bridge for $20. Money can be a strange motivator.

Walk Kowalski will deny that this guy broke his ankles, and that nobody has ever broken their ankles.
