“And to your left is a suicidal man on a crane”
These were essentially the words some friends and I heard from a bus driver, as he spoke into the p.a. system. Sure enough there were police, an ambulance, and the fire department, all assembled below a crane on a construction site. I caught myself straining to look at the would-be jumper. Dear lord, suicide as a spectator sport.
“He’s just below the orange part” the bus driver continued saying, as he slowed the bus to a crawl so we could all rubberneck this man on the verge of death.
And then we went dancing????
This city’s getting to me.
