A View of the C

Funny – Inappropriate – Edumacational

Funny or Disturbing?

Apparently in London, a DJ played the Van Halen song “Jump” while a woman was on a bridge threatening to jump to her death. He felt that since she couldn’t hear the song no harm was done, and furthermore, it was more to appease and entertain the frustrated drivers that were held up as a result of the impending jump.

I kind of think it’s funny in a disturbing kind of way, what do you think? Read more about it here (jump!), in case you need more information before forming an opinion.

  2. The 30-year-old woman eventually jumped, sustaining only minor injuries in shattering her heel bones, Manchester police said. She would not have heard the song on the bridge, and so it could not have affected her actions, police said.
