End of the road for the VW Beetle. Gas company linked to explosions in 3 states. She was an amazing woman who was not in the least bit suicidal and the most loving generous person. My family and I do not wish her to be remembered this way. Please take her name off your website along with mine now that I see you have exposed our "private" conversation to the internet. They put on the emergency lights when pulling over. I immediately got a creepy feeling and looked up this website when I got home.
Didn't see the color because it was dark but the tail lights looked like that of a jeep any more info is welcome. Several police cars racing to site and police already there looking over bridge. Private vessels circling below.
We saw a rescue vehile race down the off ramp then back on the interstate. We didn't see anyone in the car. We didnt stop but I do believe someone jumped.
Both the rescue guys that were there, were looking over the edge. We stopped on the north side rest area and saw EMT crews and about 3 or 4 boats race out that way. After a little while the EMT crews left and we did to. I don't know if this really happened but I had bad feeling driving over and seein those two rescue vehiles. There was an empty black Accura with its lights still on and windows down Got a very weird vibe like someone might have jumped several minutes before I got there.
I immediately knew something was wrong because there was no sign that he was having car trouble. My husband and I knew something, saw him get out of the car and it was evident what his intensions were so we pulled up behind him.
Out of respect for the his family, I am not going to elaborate but I will say he was determined and focused. We jumped out of our vehicle to try to stop him but it was too late and he made his decision.
Our teenage daughter was with us and was very distraught. She asked why he would do that in front of us. God only knows but I know I will be a better friend, a better listener and will be even more aware of those around me that may be silently suffering and feeling hopeless.
Life is hard and I can only imagine what you are feeling, thinking, what you have been through, endured but it is not our decision as to when this life ends.
Go to a friend, a church, pick up a phone and call PLEASE, do not do this to yourself, to your family, to another stranger that drives away wishing they could have helped or a teenager that doesn't understand why.
Your decision not only affects you We shed tears over a person we didn't know but had value and was important to someone in this world. We have wondered who he was and what was so bad that he felt this was the only way out. I now know his name was Jeremy and that even though we never met, I will never forget him. I am praying for his family and friends. My sister was driving and we thought it was a tourist that was going to get out and take pictures.
Much to my surprise as soon as we drove by, he jumped off the bridge. My teenage daughter and another friend was in the car. I have been so upset since Sunday. My brain can't believe what my eye saw.
We slowed down and then had to pull off the road. We all stood besides the sea wall in hopes that what we just saw wasn't so. God Bless to his family!!!! Costley drove his Acura Integra northbound just south of the center span and exited his vehicle and jumped off the bridge.
The body was recovered by local fisherman and taken to the marina. Next of kin has been notified. Sunday has been identified as Jeremy M. Costley, 31, of Lakewood Ranch. Costley drove his Acura Integra northbound and stopped just south of the center span. Witnesses, several who stopped their cars, saw him exit his vehicle and jump off the bridge.
Costley's myspace page bio: I hang out at the Gulf Gate bars like The Paddywagon and Pasttimes, Siesta Key Beach whenever possible - I can be found in the pavillion dancing to music in my head or enjoying the drum circle if I've got Sunday off, the Starbucks in Midtown Plaza when I'm looking for conversation, a caffeine fix, or just somewhere to use the internet while mine is shut off, and the Ringling art museum if I've got Monday off I'm the one dressed in black.
I like fine dining even though I'm not rich. My ears are pierced and I plan on gauging them up to a nice size but no hockey pucks. Oh yeah, and I can bust a move, so if you see me breaking it down at the bar or dance floor step up and show off! It even has an interview with someone who jumped and lived! The lesson being hit the water head-first if you're serious about dying;" since the beginning of this website, we have had several friends of the site contact us with declarations of suicide or simple musings of such.
He was a nice guy, I know he has been battleing depression for long over a year. It is hard to see a friend go through this state. My best friend and myself had him stay with us for a year in Florida.
We were afraid this would happen in Michigan a year prior. He had other issues with life that I dont feel is appropriate to post here. It seemed like he was doing better and moved out on his own. Shortly after, I had to move back to Michigan to live with my family.
Jeremy had a steady full time job, and I feel that he enjoyed his stay in Florida. This was a good move forward for him, since the economy was so bad in Michigan.
I just wish that he would have kept in contact with me. I had no idea that he was in such a state again. The last I knew, his internet was down and he has not been able to use the computer much if at all. Unfortunatley, I can not post any of this information on his Myspace, because only the owner can approve comments. I can only say that Jeremy was a good person and he felt a lot of pain. I hope that he is in a better place now and his family and his friends are in my prayers.
My thanks goes out to all of you wittness that attempted to help. My apologies for bearing the sight and loss of my friend. And thank you for sharing all the information that you have.
I've known Jeremy for about 12 years. It had been a while since I had seen him. I wish I had a chance to see him more recently before he did this. He was always a great person, was always a great friend when I needed one. He even used to have a little crush on me; which makes me smile when I think of his in discreet ways of flirting with me: I know he battled depression, but I guess I never pictured him actually acting on it.
After he found out about our friend Kim killing herself, I thought it may have made him see things differently. I just hope he finally found the peace that he had been searching for. He will always be missed. Love you Jeremy RIP. If anyone has obituary info please e-mail it to the address listed thank-you. His friend's brother and son-in-law was traveling on the bridge when the car in front of them pulled over and stopped. They pulled over too thinking they could help with a flat tire or something but, before they could speak to him the person who I am sure is Jeremy Costly got out of his car, walked around it and jumped off the bridge.
The story of this man's jump traveled by word of mouth from FL to three other distant states. God bless those who are so desperate, they feel that jumping is the only answer.
God bless those who are tramatized by witnessing this last desperate act. Jeremy was a great person and will certainly be missed!! I wish he could have found another way to deal with his battles so he didn't have to choose this as his only way out!!
I hope he has found peace! You will be missed!! I wish all the love and strength to his family! Last week I learned that a friend of mine had committed suicide. Jeremy had moved to Florida from Michigan a year or so ago, ostensibly to get away from the bad drug scene he'd gotten himself hooked into oxys, coke. The last time I heard from him about 9 months ago he was doing well, cleaned out and working. But he didn't have many friends down there.
Anyways, I found out last week that he had jumped off of a bridge down in FL. When I did a google search for his name I came across the link below. I had never heard of this site, and I almost can't believe that it exists. I find it disgusting and I admit that I am prejudiced against it right now as it does in fact talk about my late friend.
Am I just reacting in a completely emotional way? Is there ANY legitimate value to a site like this? Or is it as disgusting and inappropriate to you as it seems to me? I laugh like crazy at the Darwin Awards, so I I'm not really in a position to pass judgment. Practically choked to death laughing when I hit the one link and they started playing Van Halen.
Yeah it's messed up, but a lot of humor is. Black Comedy, etc, tends to be offensive to some people, who might be the first to fall over laughing at another case. I can understand how this can be offensive to you or anyone who knows someone this site is reporting on. I am in no way trying to be my typically asshole self None of us in this life have a right to not be offended by others.
We have the right to ignore it and not to partake which is why I would suggest you get on with your life and live it the way your friend would want you to. And morbid too; very morbid.
I don't know about offensive though. But definitely the other two Is it offensive to me? No, because it is not a relative or a friend of mine "featured" but I would, most likely, be offended if it was.
And morbid too; very morbid " ridicule and leave those left behind to deal with your inability to fight your way through life. Does anyone have obituary info? To know him was to love him; i cannot regret the things left unsaid enough. Visitation starts at 1p. If anyone wanted to carpool, find me on myspace or facebook. Petersburg, Florida, Thank you, Alison. I have reached the point that I don't see it replay in my mind over and over again but I still think daily and I pray for his family and friends.
Actually he didn't say anything. He knew we were there, getting out of our car but jumped before we could even say a word I am sorry for your loss of so many friends and pray that through this tragedy people will know that God loves them, He is real and just waiting for them to call out to Him.
He tells us in the scripture Romans 3: No one is perfect and our deeds and works don't get us into heaven and in Romans 6: But God's gift is eternal life given by Jesus Christ our Lord. So many people think that they have nothing or no one to care.
They feel they would have to give up something, and addiciton or desire to accept God in their life. Some feel so hopeless but no one has to live in that darkness. I don't know why we happened to be the ones that had to witness this but there is a reason and I want to live out that purpose by telling others. I am hopeful that someone will hear his story and change their mind about doing this to themselves or others that are left behind.
Thank you for contacting me and I wish you the best, Cindy. Just me, Bradenton, FL. It was dark out. Nothing else that I could see. Does anyone know anything more? Gave me a sick feeling. Subject has a rope tied around his neck, and the other end tied to the bumper of his car.
Subject also has a knife. Pinellas EMS is talking to him right now Don't know if this would classify as a jumper, because his apparent goal is NOT to hit the water He also has a knife to his neck.
Update - subject taken into custody. Nov 10, The Florida Highway Patrol got a call about 1: When troopers got there, they found the man, who had tied a rope around his neck and secured the end to his car, said FHP spokesman Sgt. He also had a knife, officials said.
Troopers and paramedics who responded to the scene negotiated with the man, who backed away from the bridge wall. Then, while the man was distracted, another trooper approached from behind and subdued him, Kraus said. He was taken into custody under the Baker Act. Authorities did not release the man's name. He is 44 years old, Kraus said. The year-old man told St. Petersburg Fire Rescue firefighters and paramedics not to come closer and that he planned to jump, setting off a standoff Tuesday that closed southbound lanes and snarled traffic on the bridge for miles.
Events leading up to the standoff began with a 1: When Jacobson and his crew arrived, a Jeep appeared to be abandoned. But procedure required firefighters to walk up to the vehicle for a check, then if the vehicle is indeed empty, a search of the water below is ordered.
But 15 feet from the Jeep, as firefighters weathered heavy winds walking to the vehicle, they spotted the shadow of man in the passenger seat. The man in the Jeep saw them, too. The man also had a knife to his neck, and rope around his neck with the other end tied to a roll bar inside the Jeep.
With the southbound lanes of the bridge closed, and the wind whipping and making it difficult to hear, the firefighters began trying to talk the man down. For 30 to 40 minutes, the man talked about how bad his life had become, how someone in his family had caused his pain, Jacobson said. The man finally blurted out a statement to which Jacobson responded that seemed to turn the tide of the dangerous situation. After firefighters promised to bring a loved one to the scene the man said he wanted there, he put one foot back over the ledge, then a second.
He then stepped back onto the bridge and faced the firefighters. That gave a Florida Highway Patrol trooper the chance to hit the man with a Taser from behind, grab the knife and take him into custody. I just hope the guy gets the help he needs. Of course it is!!!! Suicide is a cowards way out. If you want to die, get a dangerous hobby. If you can't afford a dangerous hobby, buy a rope and take care of your coward business in a private location. Maybe even do the coroners a favor and call them right before you kick the chair out from under your feet.
They will appreciate not having to smell a rotten corpse. I swear to god, I have been close to throwing myself off that bridge after waiting 2 hours to go the last 5 miles of the span. Suicide is selfish enough to your family, let alone the thousands of commuters that like to use the bridge. I think it is a great idea for the electric rails They just need to put signs up warning potential jumpers, that way they don't even bother, and screw up traffic.
And after that rant Death by drowning is one of the worse ways to die Its right up there with burning alive. And lets be real PS I think a cliff diving skyway competition could deter jumpers Maybe not, but the fall IS very survivable if you know how to hit the water.
He caused me a one hour headache. He was standing near edge facing wind with his cape flappin. Not sure of his intentions but would sure like to know. Trooper was approaching from behind. Is this a jumper or just some knucklehead. Did anyone else see it?? FHP arrived on skyway for fully involved car fire. As they arrived male jumped face first into water. Single occupant on boat and doing CPR and unable to drive. They are by north fishing pier and awaiting marine unit. FD is reporting burnt body in trunk of vehicle.
The car fire was fully engulfed. A FHP car drove by us on the right shoulder up to the burning car. A man ran to edge of the bridge, almost at the middle of the span, right after FHP drove past. He climbed up on the edge and did a super-man dive over the side. The guy in a pickup truck in front of us saw the same thing. We both got out and ran to the side. The jumper was already floating, face down, and not moving.
The man from the pick-up truck yelled to the a nearby fishing boat and pointed to the body. The nearby boater was on the way to him. It appeared they were pulling him on board and drove towards the north pier.
Everyone was out of their cars, looking over the side, in disbelief of what we all just saw. On the news tonight, we are hearing reports there is a possible second body in the car. It was a strange and sad afternoon. There was a car fire on the top of the SB skyway. The fire dept found a body in the trunk after the fire was put out and witnesses saw a person jump off the bridge. Boaters shortly after picked up the body and took it to O'Neils.
My guess this is a murder suicide with the fire to disguise it. A second body was found in the trunk of a burned car, the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office said. Joel Granata, spokesman with St. Firefighters popped the car's truck and found a body, said Debbie Carter, a sheriff's office spokeswoman.
Firefighters were extinguishing the fire on the car when they received several calls of a man who jumped off the bridge. A Florida Highway Patrol officer also saw the man jump off the bridge, the sheriff's office said. The fire department sent marine units to the scene. When the fire department unit reached the bridge, the body of a white male in his 30s had been recovered by three people in an foot fishing boat.
The man in the water and the person in the car are connected, Granata said. The man found dead in the water "was the driver of the car. Southbound traffic is backed up to 54th avenue North, FHP said. Northbound lanes have remained open as officers investigate, FHP said. Carter said the investigation will be a lengthy process.
Sheriff's investigators were trying to determine whether to bring the medical examiner to the scene or move the car to another location and have the medical examiner meet them there, Carter said. Dan Aberg, an IT expert for a Sarasota-based company, was driving over the Sunshine Skyway Monday afternoon when he saw smoke, then a car burning beside the road. He snapped this photo with his phone and drove on. Kelly Laird, 7, now lives with relatives.
Contributions can be dropped off at any MidFlorida location or send checks to: Box Lakeland, FL Checks should be made out to: Note on the check: We were stuck in traffic for an hour but I did get to see the car and all the detectives looking in the trunk!
The car looked like a spent charcoal briquette. The car was empty and all the windows were down. There were 4 FHP cars behind the Blazer. I did not see anything on the news. It really is an erie feeling. Coming back over the bridge about an hour later, the bridge was clear and no vehicles were there. FD units made silent approach and subject was taken into custody at about Then the second trooper showed up and waived me off as he got ready to make his move, he was 50 ft.
The 2nd trooper waited until the jumper was looking at trooper 1 and arround the jumpers truck he went running with all he had by the time the jumper knew what hit him he was cuffed and off to have some quiet time.
Witness states she saw a black male walking on the edge of the bridge on the east span south of the hump. When she looked in rear view mirror she no longer saw him.
FHP notified the Coast Guard that a vehicle is at the top of bridge north bound. FHP located the vehicle and moved the vehicle off the bridge. FHP gave info that the vehicle was stolen and the driver got another ride off the bridge.
One hour later, the story changed. Now it is being reported that keys and all possessions were in the vehicle. I am sure the story may still change further. Or someone chose an odd place to dump a stolen car. Florida Highway Patrol responded to a disabled beige four-door Ford parked on the bridge around 4 a. The keys were still inside. Petersburg Fire Rescue at 7: A search of the rocks and waters beneath the bridge yielded nothing.
FHP has no suspects in the theft of the vehicle and no other indication that anyone used to facilitate a suicide attempt. But no one has been found, and authorities say it's unclear whether the driver jumped from the bridge or found another way off after leaving the car there. A citizen spotted the beige Ford four-door sedan at 4: As a precaution, the highway patrol asked the U. Coast Guard to search the area beneath the bridge. Petersburg Fire and Rescue said they also were asked to help.
Potential jumper in a dark older import. Potential jumper was haggard in appearance. We were really scared. He appeared to be recovering, but the injuries were just too substantial and complications took him away. Matt will be terribly missed by his family and friends. Jul 17, Three men fishing underneath the span came to the rescue, St. Petersburg Fire Rescue authorities said. The man, who is described as a white male in his 30s, was transported to Bayfront Medical Center, where he was listed in critical condition, according to information from Fire Rescue spokesman Lt.
Witnesses said the man parked a Ford F pickup near the top of the northbound span around 9: It is unclear whether the fishermen aboard the foot center-console vessel saw the man fall or heard a splash, Granata said. They told rescuers only that the man was bleeding when they pulled him aboard. Some plan users have complained of a lack of choices and menu flexibility compared to other plans, but a company spokesman says they offer more than entrees and can make substitutions to accommodate allergies and food preferences.
It's a reasonable price for well-made food with slightly faster average weight loss than with Jenny Craig. This meal-delivery service, endorsed by Marie Osmond and Dan Marino, emphasizes foods with a low glycemic index. The underlying premise is that controlling blood sugar levels leads to weight loss.
The heat-and-eat prepared meals and snacks contain roughly 55 percent "good" carbs, 25 percent protein, and 20 percent fats; like Jenny Craig, you add fruits, vegetables and dairy. Support is available through phone counseling and online chat rooms. There's plenty of research showing that following a diet of 1, to 1, calories a day, such as Nutrisystem, can cause weight loss. For example, a study by the Obesity Research Center at St. Luke's Roosevelt Hospital in New York found that postmenopausal women who followed a 1,calorie plan for 16 weeks lost an average of 21 pounds.
For a meal-delivery diet system, Nutrisystem is more economical than Jenny Craig. Although today's program is not as stringent as the original liquid fast Medifast launched decades ago, the low-fat, relatively low-carb plan is designed to bring about rapid weight loss by coaxing your body into a "fat-burning state" known as ketosis.
The 70 meal replacement choices include shakes, bars, soups, pudding, oatmeal, chili, pretzel sticks, cheese puffs, and scrambled eggs. If you can stick with it, a diet of 1, calories a day can certainly induce rapid weight loss. A common concern with such low-calorie diets is that you'll quickly regain the weight, but in a small clinical trial recently published in the journal Experimental Biology , after 10 months, only about one in five people regained all the weight they had lost.
Choose this more extreme plan only if quick weight loss is your priority. Within hours of posting a seven-second video of their son learning to walk, Whitney and Adam Dinkel were flooded with messages.
