I agree 100%, but this guy probably thought that's just what he was doing until someone interfered. Until the day comes when we can go to the docs & get a prescription for an Exit pill, go home, get tucked up in bed with your family by your side & a bottle of good single malt, then there will always be the chance that innocents will get hurt. There's a bridge on the M1 near me which seems to be a favourite with jumpers, we had 2 last year & it causes chaos. M1 closed for the day & gridlock from Nottingham to Bradford. I response to HP, yes I would try & stop a jumper, not because I didn't want him/her take their own life, but for the inconvenience it would cause to innocents, plus pity the poor barsteward who's car/lorry he lands on. It's rude & inconsiderate. Would I stop someone trying to shoot themselves, like feck! I'd clear the area & let them get on with it
