On this day in 1885,Sarah Ann Henley survived a 76 foot jump from the Clifton Bridge, in Avon England.

"The rash act was the result of a lovers quarrel. A young man, a porter on the Great Western Railway, determined to break off the engagement, wrote a letter to the young woman announcing his intention. This preyed on the girl's mind, and she, in a state of despair, rushed to end her life by the fearful leap from the Suspension Bridge."
