Mike O'Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge Suicide Risk

The Mike O'Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge opened last month to motorists and tourists.

The bridge opened without a suicide net or barriers to prevent possible jumpers. And that's raised some eyebrows.

We talk with the executive director of the American Association of Suicidology about how putting up barriers can dramatically decrease potential suicides.
