The Golden Gate Bridge, a San Francisco icon known around the world for its striking beauty that pierces through even the foggiest of days, has amassed more suicides than anywhere else in the world. The bridge currently has no suicide barrier or net installed. On most of the bridge, a four-and-a-half-foot railing is what separates those walking on the bridge from the 220-foot fall into the water.
This video looks into the proposed safety net that was passed by the Golden Gate Bridge Board District in 2008 and the people who have been personally affected by the bridge's fatal lure.
