Man Jumps to His Death from Skyway

Around 3:25 p.m. Sunday, a man parked his gray four-door vehicle in the southbound lanes over the center span of the Sunshine Skyway Bridge and then jumped off the bridge.

According to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office, a man jumped to his death Sunday from the Skyway Bridge. 

Around 3:25 p.m. Sunday, Florida Highway Patrol alerted the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office that a man parked his gray four-door vehicle in the southbound lanes over the center span of the Sunshine Skyway Bridge and jumped over the side.

Fifteen minutes later, the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office Marine Unit recovered a body found floating facedown in the center channel, a news release said.

The body was taken to O'Neill's Marina in south St. Petersburg and turned over to Hillsborough Sheriff's Office.

sometimes it's the only way out,or at least people get to that feeling.I feel very sorry for this person who was probably in a battle against something he/she could not overcome.This is why I Praise God every day for sending His only Son Jesus to die for our sins.When we look at how Jesus suffered,it should give people like this jumper hope that they can overcome these issues in this life and prevent others from doing something similar.God is more powerful than the devil and his agents who war with the Saints to make them give up on trusting the Lord.Jesus overcame satan on that cross and with His Resurrection from death,He conquered death for all who believe in the name of Jesus Christ and put their Faith in Him.Amen

if there was a god, he would have stepped in to stop the jump. if there is a god, he is a cruel jackass that finds humor in his subjects jumping off damn bridges.
