Jumping Off the Sunshine Skyway Bridge...and Surviving

The Sunshine Skyway Bridge has become one of the top ten places in America to end your life.

On this special Florida Matters, we bring you the radio documentary "Splash" about the many who jumped, one lucky guy who survived, and how broken bones and a collapsed lung made him a new man.

We also talk to the documentary's producer, Lakeland native Rich Halten, about some of the ethics of taking on this difficult subject.
