Golden Gate Bridge Facebook Page

Yesterday, a 16-year-old girl survived a jump from the Golden Gate Bridge.

The San Francisco Bridge is 220-ft high and reportedly one of the most popular suicide spots, it reportedly claims about 25 lives each year.


The teen lived through the drop and her time in the 53-degree water of San Francisco Bay before being rescued, reported the Associated Press. She was transported to Marin General Hospital but her condition wasn’t available immediately.

According Huffingtonpost,  the first call to fire dispatchers arrived at 10:53 and rescuers were on the scene 20 minutes later.

According to NBC, It was not clear early on, if the girl jumped on purpose or somehow fell from the mid-span section but by Sunday evening, Golden Gate Bridge spokeswoman, Mary Currie said she could confirm the teen jumped in a suicide attempt.

This follows a similar incident in March, when a teen boy survived a jump while on a school field trip but claims it was a stunt.
