Teen survives jump from Golden Gate Bridge

The headline:  Teen survives Golden Gate Bridge fall

The link:  http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2011/04/17/BAVT1J2G5H.DTL&tsp=1

The summary:  A 16 year old girl fell from the Golden Gate Bridge this Sunday and survived the estimated 200 foot fall and about 20 minutes in the water.

The reaction:  The obvious question is what caused her to jump?  Accident?  Dare?  Suicide?

I’ve never been to the Golden Gate Bridge but I can’t imagine it’s easy to get to the edge where you can make a clear jump.  And a 200 foot drop into the water is rarely survived so this girl ought to consider herself VERY lucky she’s lived to tell the tale.
