please, i mean NO disrespect, but does anyone have information regarding the poor woman who jumped to her death on late friday / early saturday morning from the west seattle bridge? god rest her soul and thank youJuly 12, 2011 at 2:36 am #729387
miss kitten: There don’t seem to be any 911 calls on the log for the West Seattle Bridge during that timeframe.July 12, 2011 at 2:51 am #729388
miss kitten . . . what information do you have? is this something you witnessed?July 12, 2011 at 3:04 am #729389
I saw someone walking across the bridge the other day, pretty late. I am not sure if it was Friday though. There also appeared to be a broken down car about 1/2 mile from the person, so I just assumed their car broke down. I hope this person did not jump. :(July 12, 2011 at 6:50 am #729390
i knew her. she has no family in the states. our neighbors are completely freaking out. just wondered if anyone saw anything. dark hair, medium to slender build, she drove a green sedan. just hoping for details. the family will arrive within the next few days, but i want to help all i can. thanks to all who have answered. and if anyone has any info i would be so grateful. thank you
and rest in peace my kind neighborJuly 12, 2011 at 6:57 am #729391
no thank the lord i did not witness this, but i see it in my mind and it is haunting. i’m just trying to put together some info for her family and friends. thank all of you again for any and all help you may provide.
be sure to tell everyone you care about that you love them. suicide is so final and so hard on those left behind.
again my thanks for anything anyone might knowJuly 12, 2011 at 7:03 am #729392
did you notice what type of car it was? she drove an older green sedan, toyota, honda or the like 4 door?
thank youJuly 12, 2011 at 9:23 am #729393
As I said when I assume the same person brought this up in an unrelated thread – I hadn’t heard about this. But, previous bridge suicides we have covered have happened in the middle of the day, and we heard about it from passersby. Consulting the 911 log for early Saturday, there is a med-6 (generally indicates serious injury/illness) call at 2:35 am at 11th/Klickitat, which would be right under the bridge.
That area would be fairly deserted at that time, so no surprise we heard nothing. My deepest condolences. I will check with SFD in the morning to verify that was the call.July 12, 2011 at 2:25 pm #729394

I saw what appeared to be two women standing behind a green car (looked to be an older model Toyota) on the bridge westbound. They seemed out of place and it looked like they were hugging or one was comforting the other which struck me as odd. I almost stopped to see if they needed help but I just didn’t. Now I wish I had stopped. It wasn’t at the wee hours of the morning, though. Perhaps this drama played out over a longer period? My “encounter” would have been about 5:30 pm. . . . .July 12, 2011 at 4:44 pm #729395
SFD confirms the 2:35 am call involved someone who jumped from the bridge. Medical Examiner’s hotline has a death that appears to be this case. So, so sorry to hear this; as we would note in any story mentioning suicide, the Crisis Clinic has a 24-hour hotline: 206.461.3222. For family and friends of someone whose life has ended this way, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention has helpful information here: http://www.afsp.org/index.cfm?page_id=FED822A2-D88D-4DBD-6E1B55D56C229A75July 12, 2011 at 4:57 pm #729396
Sorry, I did not notice the make/model/color of the car. It was dark out. I know the car was smaller and dark. Also, this probably wasn’t the person. I think it was about 11PM when I drove across, unless she waited a while. How heart breaking. I am so sorry to her family and friends. :( My heart breaks for her and everyone in her life.July 12, 2011 at 5:02 pm #729397
sorry for your loss, miss kitten. hopefully your kindness will help the family cope with the tragedy. and hopefully you will find some solace during this difficult time.July 12, 2011 at 5:17 pm #729398
My condolences, miss kitten, and to the family and other friends of this woman.

I am so sorry for your loss — what a strange (and amazing) way to acquite the final news — and the closure you all need. WSB isn’t just for sharing celebration (though it’s great for that too.)July 12, 2011 at 9:15 pm #729401July 12, 2011 at 10:31 pm #729402
oh much whine thank you so much for the information. i hope level 6 means she went instantly. thank you for all of your kind words and help. this was a tragic loss of a beautiful soul. if you know someone with depression…take it seriously. she did seek help, but it just wasn’t enoughJuly 13, 2011 at 12:11 am #729403July 13, 2011 at 1:51 am #729404
miss kitten, I don’t want to be morbid about it, but the injuries listed as cause of death made it pretty clear it would have been instant, so please don’t worry about any lingering suffering. that is a long fall. And you make an important point. Suicide is a deadly symptom of mental illness – be it depression or something else – and few realize that.July 13, 2011 at 3:08 am #729405
miss kitten – I am so very sorry for your loss. Thank you WSB for pointing out the dangers of mental illness. It’s an issue that hits so close to home. I’ve lost way too many loved ones to suicide and it breaks my heart to see the suffering it causes. The only good thing becomes suicide awareness programs and hopefully the prevention of others.
If you have a chance, read postsecret.com, a glimmer of hope is out there.

Missy Kitty, There are two things I am sure of. First, I did see two people (as I described) on the bridge that seemed a bit out of place – enough to make me make note of it. I also thought back to when on Saturday (7/9) I would have been coming westbound on the bridge and it would have to be about 5:20 pm. I can not be 100% sure that I saw these two beople next to a late model Toyota a bit east of the high point of the bridge (right about where the speed limit changes to 45) on that particular trip across the bridge but it sure seems to fit. It seemed like maybe they had car problems or something but the way they were talking and body language told me it wasn’t just a flat tire or out of gas situation. It’s hard to get a “vibe” at 45 mph but the vibe I got wasn’t car problems. . . . . .It looked like they were having a conversation at the back of the car and there appeared to be some consoling (hugging?) going on – that’s just the feeling I got. I am so sorry this whole situation didn’t end better.July 13, 2011 at 3:54 am #729407
thank you all for your help and understanding in this terrible tragedy. “much whine” that sounds like the scenario. as the report came in at 2:29am saturday morning, this had to be her friends. her car was an older model dark green toyota. again, i cannot thank you enough for all of your input. i will “respectfully” and “discretely” pass along this information to the family as i see fit. i am sorry if i have troubled anyone with horrible thoughts or images.
i am very so very thankful for the information you have provided. AGAIN~ please realize that she was in patient for awhile and seeing doctors and prescribed multiple meds…it did not work. my whole intent of starting the whole thread was to gain any info i could to help her family and to help me understand. Please realize how horrific mental illness can be and that the loss of this beautiful life is so very tragic and seems unnecessary. bless all of you and remember to let your loved ones know how much you care about them. most sincerely,
.July 13, 2011 at 4:30 am #729408July 13, 2011 at 4:37 am #729409July 13, 2011 at 4:41 am #729410
i thank you so very much for the info you provided. the pieces are falling into place and you people have a lot to do with that. again, my most sincere thanks for any and all info you have provided or might provide in the future.
life is short and we never know when it’s “our time” rather it be accident, illness, or God forbid something else.
please be kind to one another and let your peeps know you love them. DON’T hesitate to call for help if you feel someone may not be able to help themselves. again, thank you all for your time, energy and kindness in this difficult time.
peace*love*and happiness to you all
