The Golden Gate Bridge is an iconic landmark of San Francisco and, tragically, one of the most popular places in the world to commit suicide. Few know this better than Kevin Briggs, a sergeant with the California Highway Patrol who has talked hundreds of people out of jumping.
Update: In May 2013, Sgt. Briggs met Kevin Berthia, who he saved on the bridge eight years ago, at an event honoring suicide prevention. Read about their reunion here.
