Suicide on Hold

SUICIDE IS POPULAR ON BIG BRIDGES. As a result, there are emergency life-saving floats and rings as well as emergency telephones.

[Picture of a Samaritan phone out of order on American bridge]In the USA, they also have special Samaritan telephones — phones to talk people out of suicide. Now, I don’t know about you, but my thinking is that if someone went to a bridge to kill themselves, they would not be very likely to pick up the phone for help at that stage.

Just as well, too, because I have received a picture of one of these special hotline-helpline telephones, with a sign saying it is out of order! Click on the Picture to enlarge.

Let’s hope things stop getting worse in 2008!
