I hope so.

That is a stunt that should have been done years ago.

In the 1950s many of my friends and I jumped off the Medow River Bridge (the Old Bridge). When I was around 10 I jumped off the bridge when the Meadow River was up and raging (in the late spring). I was pulled under and almost drowned - fortunately, I was washed into backwater where the river makes a slight turn at Bud O'Dell's old store and service station.
I also used to jump and dive off the top of the cliff at the "40 foot hole" at Anglins Creek.
There was never a double dog dare I didn't respond to.

Haven't seen it on the news yet. This is just a little too much drama if there is no truth to it. Why would someone start something like this if it's not true? I guess for the same reason that they start all of the other topix drama.

No, it's the one on the Nicholas/Fayette County border that was named for a guy that worked for Jan Care Ambulance that was killed on it. If that's the one they are talking about, but evidently it's a hoax because nothing has ever been confirmed.

Neither was that suicide that happened either. That was true though but it hasn't been on the news or nothing.
