I hope the would-be suicide jumper has now reflected on the folly of his actions and is grateful for having been saved.

I'm glad someone else was around to help him because I wouldn't have. It would take an act of God for me to jump off a bridge.

Well ya know as someone who has always had to be CPR certified it's sometimes a hard call.

It was an obvious suicide attempt and you know the guy will try to take you down with him so....... I don't know what I would have done (probably jumped in after him as well). Why the heck not; now that I think about it I would not be able to live with myself if I didn't.

I hope the jumper gets the help he needs so badly. To actually plan and carry out such an act is one of absolute desperation.
