If all your friends jumped off a bridge…

An 11th grade honor student on a field trip jumped off the Golden Gate Bridge on a dare last Thursday.  The good news is that he miraculously survived.  The bad news is he has a broken tail bone and a torn lung.  Authorities estimate that someone jumps off the Golden Gate Bridge to commit suicide an average of once every two weeks.  And 99.9% of those jumps are fatal. 

Here’s the newstory, featuing the surfer who saved the jumper.
