TEL AVIV (Jan. 24)
A 45-year-old Israeli tried to commit suicide last week by leaping from a pedestrian footbridge onto a busy highway during the height of midday rush hour.
But the resident of Bnai Brak, Israel’s most religious town, forgot that God was watching.
Leaping to what he thought would be his death, he landed on a truckload of mattresses.
Suffering only minor bruises, he was taken to a nearby mental hospital for observation.
