Golden Gate Bridge Suicide Deterrent System

Friday, April 14, 2017

The first suicide on the Golden Gate Bridge happened three months after it opened in 1937. Since then, the Bridge shared the title as the most beautiful bridge in the world, and the bridge with the 2nd most suicides on Earth. After years of struggling to save the money needed to build a 200 million dollar Suicide Deterrent System, there is finally funding to pay for the project. Mark Jones attended the bittersweet ceremony to mark the beginning of the project.
