Sixty feet is pretty high up

This is in response to the man who jumped off a 730-foot tall bridge and got stuck in a tree on the way down. Afterward, he is arrested (Journal, Oct. 20). I think this is ridiculous. First of all, who jumps off that tall of a bridge? Also, I don’t understand why it is illegal to jump off that bridge. If he is experienced, then let him. He should be safe. But, if he’s not experienced, he could die. Either way, it’s his decision. Also, it is ridiculous how he has to sit in a tree 60 feet up in a life-threatening situation and then still go to jail and have to pay for the medical rescue. It should have been free. Sixty feet is pretty high up there. Especially when you’re hanging for three hours. Tim Shasta, Rocklin
