Interesting. I was wondering about that -- whether, if you have to make a trip from 64-foot bridge to water below, it's actually best to do so in a car. Suspension, seatbelts, padded seats, etc.
Getting out is the thing I don't get.
How did so many do it successfully?
Sure, if you can open windows, you can get out....but doors often won't open because of the water pressure.
And..if they got out, in river water, you often drown because it is murky, and you can't tell from up, and the natural buoyancy of salt water doesn't work....people drown easily in rivers because they don't know up from down.
Ack, who cares how they did it (except for researching to help others) if they did it!!!
