Many of you would have probably heard about the powerful story of Sergeant Kevin Briggs saving the life of Kevin Berthia. Would you believe that since the opening of the Golden Gate Bridge there have been over 1600 suicides, a staggering number that needs to be eradicated completely. Kevin Berthia had been suffering with a mental illness that had created enormous suffering in his life and he felt that death would be his only relief. Fortunately that dark day came to pass thanks to the help and guidance of Officer Briggs.
Watch the now retired highway patrol-man expand upon his experience with suicide over the years of encountering several hundred distraught people contemplating taking their own lives on Golden Gate Bridge. This is a very powerful video that I hope you share with your friends and family to spread another perspective about the terrible experience too many families have to experience each year.
