    1. Do the two updates that are 7 minutes apart indicate that she was in the water for only that amount of time yet she suffered what will be fatal injury from the water?

      Does drowning cause cardiac address? Or something else about the jump?

    2. what sort of chinuch leads someone to make jokes about a bar nash that took his/her life??

      can you imagine the despair leading to this act?

      all those that joke about this are in my eyes, empty people devoid of any yiddishkeit.

    3. I guess she/he thought you die once she might aswell enjoy it! its a pretty nice place to die, water the view.

      and about making fun! its not nice, but look this is what she/he wanted to no?

    4. They should electrify all the bridges, this way they immediately get zapped, avoiding all the helicopters , divers and gawkers.

      In addition it will deter all the “unsures” and attention seekers.

      You touch it- goodbye!

      Call the Aftermath crew.

      Nobody is late for work, the car is impounded,the police chief has a new ride.

    5. People jump so often that there is a phone on the side of the bridge that connects directly to a hotline. There is a sign that says something like “It’s not so bad.”.

    6. and let other people know, that death is not a better choice than life in any case, may it be the “most successful death, it still leads to death”, there is no fun down there after death, especially when we know that there is a big din vecheshbon awaiting all..

      for a living person there is always a solution, once dead, there is no way back..

    7. My heart goes out to anyone suffering so much that they’re willing to go to such lengths to ease the pain.

      May there soon come a time when the world will be free of any suffering.
