CNN: Would-be Suicide Jumper Pushed Off Bridge

BBC: Video Footage

Organizations such as the Yellow Ribbon suicide prevention program reach out to thousands of high schools and universities in America every year.  Students are told to watch out for signs of depression, and to seek help for any friends or classmates who may be contemplating suicide.  This story, however, demonstrates that not all individuals are as sympathetic toward people contemplating suicide, especially when it is done in public, and "selfish" in the sense that hundreds of commuters are unable to go to work, pick up their children from school, etc.  Your thoughts on all of this?
