Guy Who Jumped Off Golden Gate Bridge And Survived Tells His Story

It's safe to say that nobody in their right mind has ever jumped off the Golden Gate Bridge, and whether the jumper is suicidal, suffering from a mental illness or on drugs they almost never live to talk about why they jumped.

The Golden Gate Bridge is one of the most popular sites in the world for suicide, and less than 1% of those who jump off the Golden Gate Bridge survive.

Kevin Hines is one of those less than one percenters, and he told his story of suicide survival to BuzzFeedVideo in hopes that others like him will seek help rather than end their own life.

Kevin is also producing a suicide prevention documentary that shows the effect suicide has on the person's loved ones, which seems like it will be more effective than the standard "you have so much to live for" message.
