PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – A couple who work near Portland’s Vista Bridge say they’re sick of seeing suicides. The latest fatal jump was Wednesday from the 120-foot high bridge in the Goose Hollow neighborhood. Bonnie and Ken Kahn told KATU they’re part of a group pushing the city to build barriers on the bridge. The mayor’s office says the city doesn’t have the money to build anti-suicide barriers. The Kahns also are using a Facebook page to organize volunteers to walk the bridge and to make someone who may consider jumping stop and think.
