Not really high enough, probably will wish he didn't jump when hes crippled for the rest of his life.

OK, the caption under the video clip says they saved him, but the story says it's not known if they did or not. The headline says "attempt."

I gotta agree - the only way to kill yourself off that bridge is to either do a swan dive, or jump in front of a truck.

"Youngstown, Boardman
same thing."

I don't see the traffic or businesses in Youngstown I see in Boardman. One is a township the other a city.
