Facebook Page That Is Urging People To Jump Off West Gate

A Melbourne Facebook page is encouraging people to jump off the West Gate Bridge.

The page has been set up by ‘’#FreeElChapo’’ and currently has 12,000 people interested in the event, with 15,000 confirmed to be going.

The event says ‘’This event is purely to just remember the tragic death of Harambe on 28th of May at Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden, Ohio. ‘’


The page does say further down ‘’This event in no way encourages suicide, and we do not want anyone to jump off the Westgate bridge, in joining this event, you agree that any of your future actions were on your own accord and legally admit that the admins of Free El Chapo had no responsibility in the matter. ‘’

However, the title of the page is ‘’ Jump Off The Westgate For Harambe’’ doesn’t initially tell anyone that.

People are commenting on the page saying ‘’is anyone going to do this?’’

Barriers were installed on the Westgate to avoid suicides in 2009.

If you or anyone is having adverse feelings, you should call LifeLine on 13 11 14.
