Amazing she lived, that is quite a fall. What a shame anyone would consider jumping in the first place.

I gave her a 6 for form and style but only a 3 on entry because of the huge splash.

ok I found this hilarious, to post a complaint about the site, you must fill out a form which includes your guess as to when the next jumper will jump, ironicly, they call it the " *****ing and whining page" So this lady writes in and *****es and whines, and her guess is only 3 hours off of the actual time, she almost won, but someone else was closer. That's funny!!!

Do you think if she were in a canopy she would live?

It's not the fall that'll kill ya, it's the sudden stop at the end

That is one hell of a leap. Driving across the Skyway is a great place to stretch the legs of some German metal.

We have a bridge here in Seattle that people like to jump from. It doesn't have the same expanse but is really close in height. Problem here is that there are allot of houseboats directly underneath of it. One woman has had several different people land on the house and not even make the water.
