Wow, does anyone have any history to this image, and I want to know how did they catch it on photo, where they people spotting and she just did it or what,
There is a whole story here, yet this photo speaks so much more.
Incredible

Absolutely, she's incredible. I wish I had her courage. Absolute inspiration.

Not quite full story but I think this documentary starts with the person who took the image:

Peculiar way to jump. I wonder what do people feel in the meantime.
I'd choose a more "dip-y" way, there's the chance you could end on a cliff edge suffering tremendously like this

That's an amazing photo and would be great to have a big version hanging on my wall.

She has a skirt and high heels on!

Does anyone else try to imagine what it feels like when you land?
I fell from three stories once, in a backyard garden, not on purpose, i was very drunk and slipped. Mania days.

Didn't felt painful (the impact), the endorphines kicking in i guess, more like a splash in a swiming pool like.

10 minutes later started the pain, a broken leg and a nicked pelvis, and the shame when the firemen came.

Probably won’t feel anything, your brains would splatter and then it won’t register pain. It’ll probably be as quick as a gunshot to the head, except you’ll have a few seconds of consciousness while you’re falling. I wonder what goes through the minds of these jumpers as they jump and while they’re falling. I’d love to jump but don’t think I’ll have the guts. In a moment of anger/impulsivity I might find it easier.

Hadn't seen the picture before. It is indeed inspiring. I might be able to jump from a certain height but only if I knew that I couldn't survive. The fact that there's at least three survivors in the documentary is already too much for me. Really enjoyed it though. Especially what the guy in the wheelchair had to say. But I was also put off by how cold and misunderstanding some of the recovery team/LE comments were, even going as far as calling it a "win" when someone survived and they'd pull them back into this hell. I'm sure there are good people among them too, but I also feel suicidals shouldn't compromise their methods to avoid leaving a mess for them.

Great photo. I've often dreamt about taking a train to Beachy Head and jumping. The problem is that it's heavily policed by pro-lifers. Also, the taxis have a special code for passengers who look like they're going there to jump.

Inspiration? I understand where you all are coming from but I do feel that it's important to be quite sensitive with images like this. It can be hard to remember that this is an actual person with a family and friends who loved her. Calling the last moments of her life "inspiring" and "amazing" can be so incredibly harmful to people already in fragile spaces.
Every one of us is here because we are struggling and I understand that escape can be so easily idolized, but when it comes to another human being it almost verges on pro-suicide for me. Escape from suffering may be beautiful, but death isn't, and the pain she must've been in to go through with this isn't, and what her family is left with for the rest of their lives most certainly isn't. Please consider this? I'm really not trying to offend or attack or lecture anyone; just hoping to offer another point of view. This community especially deserves that empathy and understanding.
