Why don't people that want to commit suicide just go sky diving?

I bet you that most people that jump off a bridge are like " Oh frick ! What have I done ? " about halfway down.

If they just go skydiving I think that most of them would pull the cord before they hit the ground.

If they are really committed they can just hit the ground, but at least they will know for sure.

Thoughts?

ETA: Obviously this is a thought for people that are planning their own suicide. Not impulse suicide victims.


ETA #2: I think that in the OP I should have stressed more the fact that skydiving could have a great therapeutic effect as an activity. Especially if they have to go through classes and multiple tandem jumps. Couple that with the new perspective they may receive being involved in an activity that brings them so close to death, by the time they are ready to jump by themselves, suicide might not even be an option.

The first few times you go sky diving you have to go tandem. That's a lot of time training to get certified to jump by yourself just to kill yourself.

If I wanted to kill myself, I’d fricking kill myself.

Swallow 50 oxys and some anti-coagulants , jump off a tall building, and shoot myself in the head on the way down.

Was coming to post the same thing. Suicide by skydiving is going to require quite the commitment unless you're the instructor.

Is that a picture of your home tank, or from diving somewhere?

Besides, i think skydiving in general may be good for a suicidal person. The whole possibly falling to your death thing may give them some perspective.
