the lady overboard at Orlando - DID NOT generate as much publicity as the cruise ship overboard lady... we had an article in our local paper, but the article was very brief and no follow up; whereas, the other lady had her details on every news channel and news website; interviews with "witnesses" that were on the ship etc...

Paul: google suicide and Skyway Bridge; we have numerous jumpers and attempt jumpers on this bridge (located between Manatee Co & St. Petersburg); they have a suicide hotline phone on the bridge in several locations. Hopefully, the cruise ships don't start posted suicide hotline numbers on the railings... but then again, if that is what it takes to keep one person safe it would be worth it.
