Teens Fate Wasn’t Death off the GG Bridge

They say this may have not been a suicide attempt but a dare from fellow students. Whatever the case some severe psychological testing needs to be done after his physical injuries heal. We can’t hold everyones hand to get them off the ledge. Extensive measures have been made to make the Golden Gate Bridge. At some point we just have to call mental illness what it is an illness and stupidity , stupid. We cannot save everybody.

Teen Survives Plunge Off Golden Gate Bridge

Golden Gate Bridge

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS 5) — An eleventh-grade student from Windsor High School survived a plunge off San Francisco’s famed Golden Gate Bridge on Thursday, authorities told CBS 5.

The 17-year-old was participating in a humanities class field trip and was crossing the bridge when he jumped off near the bridge’s South Tower and into San Francisco Bay, said Windsor Unified School District Superintendent Bill McDermott.

Witnesses to the incident, which occured shortly after 11 a.m., used the word “traumatizing” to describe what they had seen.
