I just had an email from Patrick Hines. His son is one of the very few people to have survived a jump from the Golden Gate Bridge and both of them are very active and determined to get that suicide barrier built on the bridge.
Recently, Patrick wrote to Christine Craft (a former TV personality and now radio personality - Christine Craft - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) and here is her response:
"no suicide barrier...if someone wants to jump....it's not your business..nor shoud the bridge be mucked up"
Obviously, a very caring person - NOT! And obviously ill-informed about suicide in general and bridge suicides in particular.
