Film captures suicides on Golden Gate Bridge

Golden Gate Bridge officials are seething that a moviemaker who told them he was working on a “day in the life” project about the landmark was, in fact, capturing people on film as they jumped to their deaths.

Eric Steel initially told officials he planned to spend a year filming the “powerful and spectacular interaction between the monument and nature” and that his work was to be the first in a series of documentaries about national monuments such as the St. Louis Arch and the Statue of Liberty. That’s how he got the Golden Gate National Recreation Area’s permission to set up cameras on parkland overlooking Fort Point.
