CHP: Teen's Golden Gate leap not suicide attempt
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- A California Highway Patrol spokesman says investigators have recommended a psychological evaluation for a high school student who survived a 220-foot leap from the Golden Gate Bridge, although they do not believe the jump was a suicide attempt.
CHP Officer Chris Rardin says the 17-year-old boy who jumped during a class field trip Thursday should be charged with trespassing for climbing on the bridge.
He told The Press Democrat of Santa Rosa he was not at liberty to say where the boy was hospitalized or in what condition.
Surfer Chris Paicos told KGO-TV he witnessed the jump. He said the boy told him as he swam by in the water that the jump was a stunt.
