05.22.09, anon, It occurred back in the late 70's/early 80's. Don't remember exactly. His name was Harry Brown. He was young - late teens/early twenties. I knew him personally and he was my friend. He lived after the jump. When I finally caught up with him, he said that he was despondant over a girlfriend issue. He was a nice guy.

11.01.09, joe, ft myers fl., (06.1977, pm, died), we were kids and we used to use the bridges for a drag strip. found a station wagon stopped and running. we saw a wallet on the seat but we didn't touch it another car started coming up the span so we hauled ass. my friend told me the next day that some guy had jumped off the bridge. what always hits me about it was that my mother would say " if so and so told you to jump off the skyway bridge would you do that too? I never told her about what happened that night.
