A distraught 26-year-old woman who had been arguing with her boyfriend plunged 75 feet to her death from a Queen Mary walkway to the chilly waters of Long Beach Harbor Monday night. The unidentified woman's 40-year-old boyfriend and two police officers were reportedly treated for hypothermia after jumping in after her. A swift-water expert in a wetsuit also tried unsuccessfully to save her.

It was that diver who eventually reached the woman's body floating face down and pulled her to shore, the KTLA Morning News reported today.

According to the report, the woman had been overheard saying she did not want to live before entering the water around 8:30 p.m. Monday. Long Beach Police are not investigating the incident as a homicide.

I always think that when someone takes the leap, if the person has a brief moment of clarity like " this was a bad idea, I want to live" before bottoming out.

Are you people trying to be funny?  Did you know either party?  I'm sure their families don't appreciate your insensitive comments!  Keep your ignorant comments to yourselves.

Note to Guys everywhere:  Stay away from unstable, suicidal, drunk women.  Always, always, always no matter how much they try to snag you.

"The woman was apparently "rather intoxicated" at the time, Pratt said."  <-- Quoting the Times.

Yeah, because there has never been a man who was an emotionally manipulative drunk, right? I've been in a couple of relationships with suicidal, drunk MEN...but I don't use it as an excuse to crap all over the entire male gender. Can we PLEASE not use the tragically stupid decision of one woman to make sweeping generalizations about male-female relationships?

I should have emphasized thepast tense…back then I was enough of an optimistic ignoramus to think a personI was romantically involved with would change their ways with enough of my careand attention. I know now that a person can only change because they WANT to.I’ve gained from my mistakes (experiences) the understanding that you can’tenter into a relationship expecting to “fix” a person. You have to love aperson for who they are, not the person you think they should be…

What do you see in these "suicidal drunk" men that you keep chasing after?  Sounds like a losing proposition to me.  Did you think you could change them? Save them?
