Fact of the Day
Since its opening in 1937 the Golden Gate Bridge has housed over 1000 suicides. It takes roughly 4 seconds to reach the water from the bridge and, by that time one would be traveling at a speed of around 75 miles per hour. 26 people have survived the jump with broken bones and internal damage, and one survived only to jump off once again. Then again, one would have to admit that in retrospect it is a pretty dramatic exit.
