The Golden Gate Bridge opened in 1937. Since then it is estimated 1,600 people have jumped to their deaths from the bridge. Last year a record number of 46 suicides were recorded and more than 100 other would-be jumpers were stopped by bridge workers. Only a handful of people have ever survived a jump from the Golden Gate Bridge. Were you aware the bridge had such a high incidence of suicide?
