The gloomy figures could have been much higher: In 2013, grabbed the police or passers in and stopped 118 people from jumping off the bridge. In 2012 jumped 33 people to death and the previous record is believed to be 40 suicide.
Golden Gate Bridge was opened in 1937 and was for many years the record as the world’s longest suspension bridge. It has already drawn up plans for a safety net under the bridge’s pedestrian areas, but there is about 66 million US dollars or 360 million dollars to construct. Bicycle patrols watching, and there are always between two and four officers at the Golden Gate Bridge.
