TAMPA (2011-12-29) -

The Sunshine Skyway bridge spans the mouth of Tampa Bay on the west coast of Florida. It carries thousands of cars everyday.

It's also become one of the top places in America to end your life.

This is the story of the many who jumped, one lucky guy who survived, and how broken bones and a collapsed lung made him a new man.
