And what a mournful sight it was...a body slowly pulled up from the Gorge into a waiting hearst. There must be someway to modify the bridge. Someway to slow someone down, give others a chance to rescue them, grab them. A higher fence, netlike structure below...A way that preserves the view for the local economy but makes the gorge a less attractive spot for suicidal people. My heart goes out to his family.
