San Diego CA Father Drives Truck Off Cliff with Toddler Daughters on Lap

He attempted suicide and was surprised they all lived.

Quote:
“Originally, I got a call that the dad may have a gun and could try and drive off the Coronado Bridge,” said San Diego police K9 handler John Wiese.

Wiese said police tracked the father’s cell phone to the Sunset Cliffs area and another officer quickly spotted his pickup. Before police could activate their lights, they say the father accelerated and drove off the cliff. A nearby resident, who recorded the incident on his home surveillance camera, said Wiese was on scene and over the cliff to try and help within four minutes.

“My first thought was just to jump,” Wiese said. “But I thought if I jump and hit something, I won’t be much help. Then, I remembered I have a 100-foot leash in my car that we use for SWAT missions, and I thought if that can hold my 95-pound dog, then maybe it could hold me.”

Wiese pulled the father and two girls out of the wrecked pickup and tied the leash around one of the girls so other rescuers could pull her up to safety. A lifeguard came by boat from around the point and helped with the other daughter, who was injured. That daughter and the father were pulled up with a helicopter.

Wiese said he spoke to the father during the rescue.

“He said, “I can’t believe we didn’t die,” because he was trying to commit suicide. And then he told me the girls were actually sitting in his lap when he drove over the cliff and no one had seatbelts on,” Weise said. “I couldn’t fathom how they survived.”

Police told FOX 5 that one of the two girls had serious injuries, but both are expected to recover. The father is facing multiple charges, including two counts of attempted murder.

Re: San Diego CA Father Drives Truck Off Cliff with Toddler Daughters on Lap

That jump was fucking insane. It looks like the truck might have been flaming in the air, it leaves a smoke or vapor trail. If the truck didn't make it to the water, they would probably be dead from the landing G-force or fire. If the water was a little deeper, they would probably drown. Un-fucking-believable...

All the cop haters on here, that cop went to extraordinary lengths to try to save their lives. I wouldn't have risked my life hanging on a dog cable to save someone so obviously Hell bent on suicide. I would try to find a safe way to climb or walk down and it would take a long time. I guess suicide is illegal and the cop believes people should obey the law

No doubt- I wouldn’t have risked it if I didn’t know kids were in the car too. Also- I hesitated to post this because it puts the cop in a good light. Not that I’m against them nor am I a boot licker. Shit for the most part needs to change but this just goes to show good people (who happen to also be cops) do exist.

Another idiot.
Defunding the police DOES NOT mean removing them or eliminating them.
It means if you have a call about mental illness, you send a mental illness specialist, NOT an armed individual with no training on handling mental illness.
It means keeping the police on law and order, and NOT making them to things they have no training for.
Let's STOP setting the police up to fail, huh?
