Default Midspan jumpers on the 75

Had another one this morning. I watched Harbor PD do the SAR.
Is there a reason these are never reported on the news?
I get the feeling that there is at least one a day.

That's what I figured. Are the latest statistics available to us ordinary folk? I couldn't find anything online.

The News media do not report suicides.

The media generally refrains from gang-related or suicide-related incidents because we don't want to glorify it. You will sometimes see coverage of these things if there are other factors that make it newsworthy (e.g. shuts down rush-hour commute on a major freeway or roadway), but the journalistic focus is then more-so on those other factors.

The Caltrans feasibility study on a suicide deterrent for the bridge cites a number of 400 suicides since 1969.

Cmaness2001, maybe they report suicides in Arizona but in San Diego County they don't. Unless is was related to a crime. Such as for example a murder suicide.

Found various links on Google pertaining to media and suicide coverage. One study from Australia noted Australian news media "only covered 29% of suicides". If I covered 1/3 of the suicides I hear every overnight shift, you would be seeing at least 1-2 stories every morning, and that is just those from when it's dark out. :-(

No problem. Since neither jumped off the Coronado bridge that's what I thought we were talking about. Ha... I'm sure Andregg had showed up to a few of my radio calls only to find out they were 11-45's and then drive away. Right P.
