Videos like this are always tragic to witness. Earlier today, a woman seemingly attempted to climb over the fence of a Chicago expressway overpass in an effort to throw herself into traffic. Several people stopped with phones recording but, thankfully, others got out to help her down. I don't post this to simply inflate shock-value content. It hurts to know that someone out there thought this was the only option. If you or someone you know is experiencing suicidal thoughts, help is out there:
