There is a sad story out of Farmington, Utah.
A local seminary teacher was out for a jog and found himself on a freeway overpass.
In an attempt to avoid traffic, he ran to the side of the bridge and jumped over the barrier...and fell 40 feet to the ground.
He is still in the hospital, hopefully he will recover.
The weird part is that there's a pedestrian walkway next to the bridge.
It has chain-link guards on both sides of it, so you can't fall off or throw anything onto the freeway.
There is an 8-foot gap between the bridge and the walkway.
Somehow, the seminary teacher must have assumed there would be ANOTHER sidewalk next to the walkway.
I'm sure there is a lesson for us in there somewhere.
At the very least...look before you leap.
