There’s a certain cliff in Sydney, where people jump from. It’s quite famous. Or infamous, at the very least.

However, out of all the lives surrendered there, I just read of one that got a second chance. Nellie Bishop. She jumped off in 1923, only to be saved by a freak wave covering the rocks at the bottom of the cliff in deep water. She was rescued in difficult circumstances, and lived almost to 90 surrounded by her large family.

Her story should be on a plaque at the top of the cliffs, as a last ditch effort to reach out to those who are about to jump.
