Bridge Jumper Dies in Apparent Suicide

As reported by the Sun-Times about an hour ago, the jumper didn't make it. I have to say when I read on NBC5.com that he was being rushed to the hospital in any condition other than dead I didn't believe it based on what I witnessed, but I was hopeful. You've got to wonder what drove him to do it. :-( From the Sun-Times article:

Someone on a tour boat reportedly threw “life rings” to a man who jumped in the Chicago River from the Randolph Street bridge in the Loop on Thursday morning, but the man later died, an apparent suicide.
