Golden Gate jumpers

I'm not sure what it says, but this chart attached to this article about the Marin coroner pushing for a suicide barrier on the Golden Gate Bridge caught my eye. That looks like a tremendous jump(sorry) up both in successes(?) and in people stopped in the attempt, this year. I'm generally against such a barrier, but the coroner, Ken Holmes, plays the fence(sorry again) very well:

"There are an awful lot of people who take their lives for very good reasons, and I would never quarrel with them. I would probably duplicate them if I was in the same circumstance,"
