I missed the jump,
by a foot oooooooor two,
oh if I’d only knew,
now I’m a dead fellow.
ANAHEIM, Calif. — A 27-year-old man walking home from a Coldplay concert plunged 30 feet to his death after he tried to leap across a gap in a bridge spanning a riverbed.
Police say witnesses saw Guillermo Gomez, of Alhambra, try to jump across a 10-foot gap that separates the westbound and eastbound lanes of traffic and fall onto a bike path below.
Sgt. Rick Martinez says Gomez, who had attended the concert with a relative, died less than an hour later at the hospital.
He says the gap in the roadway was surrounded by 2-foot-high concrete barriers.
