For all the people complaining about being inconvenienced this morning due to the jumper situation on #LionsGateBridge, try showing some compassion for someone who got to the point of wanting to end their life that way. #SuicidePrevention
Sad to hear of the criticism about the @LionsGateBridge closure today. From someone who knows, please try to understand that EMTs were desperately trying to save a life. Please, if you’re struggling call 1-800-SUICIDE (1-800-784-2433). It will get better. Reach out. ♥️🙏🏾.
Shocked to hear some of the comments come out of people’s mouths today during the @LionsGateBridge closure due to police incident today. I hope they never have the feeling of worrying for one of their loved ones. Please, if you’re struggling call 1-800-SUICIDE (1-800-784-2433).
LOL! #Vancouver #LionsGateBridge @BriConstantine @blackcandlesoc.
BREAKING: The #LionsGateBridge has now reopened to traffic. Expect heavy delays.
Glad to hear the #LionsGateBridge is open again. Looked like a ghost town as we flew over at 1130..
After more than four hours, the #LionsGateBridge is now OPEN in both directions. But, you can still expect heavy delays. Updates in @NEWS1130 Traffic every ten minutes on the ones,.
#LionsGateBridge - Police incident just CLEARED, bridge will be re-opening momentarily.^ms.
For those whining about being stuck in the mess at #LionsGateBridge ... would you feel the same if the person contemplating jumping were a family or friend? Suck it up buttercups. The more you whine, the more inhuman you look..
The world can be a cruel place; social media just showed it. Yes it’s an inconvenience the bridge is closed BUT someone is attempting to take their life, Have a 💜 and don’t tweet out horrible things. There are other ways to get dt, this person only has 1 life #lionsgatebridge.
2 hours to get home from Davie and Denman last night. 3 hours to get off the North Shore today. The North Shore to UBC commute is rarely pleasant, but these last couple of days are driving me nuts! #LionsgateBridge.
#LionsGateBridge - Crews are in the clearing stages of the police incident on the bridge, should be re-opening soon.^ms.
In Stanley Park and happened upon this scene at #LionsGateBridge - appears to involve this bus and possibly someone contemplating suicide. Bridge closed by police. Heartbreaking..
I wanna die but could never get up the courage to get on the outside of the bridge. Is it really necessary to pause every commuters life because one guy wants to quit his? Open two lanes. #LionsGateBridge What are the chances of him getting help later anyway?.
#LionsGateBridge the highway camera has been moved. I hope this does not imply that the person has jumped from the bridge. Life is worth living. Help is always available. #SuicidePrevention.
Riding my bike around the seawall this morning and saw the coast guard and police boats in the water below the #LionsGateBridge ~ I felt such a sadness for the person contemplating suicide up above..

The #LionsgateBridge can’t handle suicide prevention fences because of the wind load. The Golden Gate Bridge faces a similar engineering challenge. San Francisco’s solution: stainless steel nets below the bridge.
Off for a hike this morning but traffic is crazy. #LionsGateBridge still closed, everywhere backed up. Avoid travelling to the North Shore if you can!!.
I am praying for the person on the #LionsGateBridge, I’m also praying for all the ppl stuck in this hidious traffic, ppl who r on the way to job interviews, drs’ appointment, workplace, trying to make a living!.
#LionsGateBridge was closed entirely this morning for the first time on a weekday in 2018 to my disheartened to hear of another jumper. If you are having thoughts of suicide, I advise you call 1-800-SUICIDE (1-800-784-2433). Please talk to someone if you need help..
@aarynvivian So it seems cyclists/pedestrians are not allowed of the bridge #LionsGateBridge.
Hey @TransLink, there’s plenty of space (including more than 10 empty seats) on this 8:51 seabus. LET MORE PEOPLE ON. #seabus #LionsGateBridge.
#LionsGateBridge still closed in both directions due to police incident.
Traffic alert! #LionsGateBridge completely blocked in both directions @CTVMorningLive.
#LionsGateBridge - Police incident on the bridge has traffic blocked in both directions ^ac.
