TRUTH !!
It's the Golden Gate Bridge !
Between 1937 and 2012, over 1,400 bodies were recovered of people who had
jumped . By 2017, the number had grown to over 2,000.


Among the 515 people who had attempted to jump from the bridge between 1937
and 1971, but were prevented from doing so, only 6% had gone on to kill
themselves later on. This finding, in a report called "Where Are They Now?"
by Richard Seiden seems to dispute the notion that suicide-attempters would
just find some other way to do it later if they were thwarted.
