Cold Spring: Bridge of Life


The Cold Spring Canyon Bridge is the “Bridge of Life” for the vast majority who make the more than five million safe and scenic trips over this beautiful bridge in a single year!

According to their own reckoning in 2008, over the previous eight years during which there was one suicide a year from the bridge, the Sheriff’s Department responded to 162 suicide-related calls at the bridge, which statistic implies that at least 19 potential suicides a year either changed their minds at the bridge, or were saved by the officers on the scene who proved they cared.-Tracy Fernandez
