Her name was Kimberly but she was from Crosby.Her chronic back pain was a small factor in why she did it. SHe was 22.

Why can't they fix the Fred Hartman bridge so others are unable to commit suicide by jumping to their death from it, why? Put up a fence to disallow access for anyone else to be able to jump to their death. I'm sure it wouldn't cost that much to be humanitarian enough to make that happen. Look at all the people that have suicided from the (DEAD) Fred Hartman bridge. That should be the new name Dead Hartman bridge or the Fred Hartmans Suicide bridge. My daughter Kimberly contemplated this bridge for sometime before actually doing it so we found out later. Too late then.

I am really sorry to hear that Ma'am and I know a death of a loved one to suicide must really hurt and especially a child grown or not. I agree a fence or something needs to be put up at that place.

You can't go around making the world safe for people that want to kill themselves.

Put a fence on the bridge?

Please.

A bridge is pretty much a safe place to off yourself if you want to.

It's a lot better than walking out in front of a bus or an 18 wheeler... at least you aren't putting someone else's life at risk... and you're not really leaving a mess for someone else to clean up like if you shot yourself.

You are certainly a lot less likely to end up in ICU worse off than you were before after a botched attempt.

No, if someone really wants to kill themselves... a fence on a bridge is not going to stop them, but it might just cost an innocent person their life.
