San Francisco youths can now text a suicide hotline

San Francisco (13abc Action News) - Every year, dozens of people jump to their deaths off of the Golden Gate Bridge.

Now, officials in San Francisco are reaching out to young people through their cell phones.

They're posting a phone number on the bridge.

Anyone contemplating suicide can send a text, or call the number to talk to with a counselor.

The line is open to all ages but eighty percent of the texts that come in are from people under the age of 25.
