Man hung himself over I-26 Bridge North of Asheville, NC
We live in a small mountain town North of Asheville, NC. My neighbor's teenage son was driving home this evening when he approached our exit off of I-26 and saw several cop cars. Traffic was blocked on both sides of the Interstate. He was expecting a bad car accident but saw no cars. Then he heard some people talking and it turns out some man had hung himself off the bridge over interstate traffic.

It just happened about an hour ago so it's not on the news yet but, WOW! This is a small mountain community and unless it was a college kid, chances are it is someone my family knows. Whoever it was, my heart and prayers go out to his family.

I am only posting it here because this hits so close to home and is downright depressing . Things are bad everywhere but you KNOW sh*t is getting real when someone hangs himself at the exit into your small town.

Most likely due to a money issue; lost his job perhaps

Had 2 suicides last week by people jumping off a bridge in my city. They weren't reported in the regular news, they never report suicides unless it was done in some spectacular fashion in a public location. People jump in front of subway trains regularly here,too. They aren't reported either, and if you're on a train that's been delayed because of the suicide they just announce the cause as 'police activity'.

I did hear that a guy jumped off the bridge where the Blue Ridge Parkway crosses I-26 near the Long Shoals rd. exit last night around 8. Is it the same one or a whole different story?

The man jumped. He did not hang himself. This occurred when I was driving by. Police were within 10 feet, but, he threw himself over. Train workers below had shut down the tracks. He died upon impact. The officials involved are offered debriefing and follow-up counseling, as needed. Even as a therapist, I have dealt with my own reactions.

I feel for his wife, although she knew he had been getting treated for depression, one is never prepared for such an outcome.

There is help, if someone needs it, from crisis lines, to grief support groups.

A friend hung himself in my garage a while back. Not something you wanna see or is it something you'll forget.

AT least it wasn't a murder-suicide. It's worse when they decide to take their kids with them too.

A lot of suicides. Tell friends and family you love them. Let them know there is more to life than the material. Encourage people to spend more time in nature.
No one should leave before their time.

This type of the death is usully attributed to someone labled as a traitor. Someone, somewhere is trying to make a clear statement to someone somewhere else.
