An unfortunate event happened just hours before Night Stalkers was shown at Defenders Park, at the east side of Pasadena’s haunted Colorado St. Bridge. Or as it’s most commonly known, “Suicide Bridge”. A man jumped from the bridge and into the Arroyo Seco to his death, after police tried to talk him down for 7 hours.
I was on the road to pick up a friend for the screening when word came in about the tragedy. I monitored the event page as we drove toward Pasadena wondering if we would have to call the screening off. That didn’t happen, and by the time the screening began at 8:00pm, there wasn’t even any police tape on the bridge restricting access.
We had a great turn out, and a fun Q&A afterward. One sobering question asked was how many of the paranormal teams featured in this documentary filmed in 2010 were left? Not many really.
Just after the screening, ANOTHER distraught man attempted to jump from the bridge, but was quickly taken into custody by police. There’s a reason Suicide Bridge has the reputation it does.
