GoldenGateBridge-001.jpgA body recovered from the San Francisco Bay this afternoon is believed to be a person who committed suicide by jumping from the Golden Gate Bridge, the Marin County Sheriff’s Office said.

The California Highway Patrol responded to the U.S. Coast Guard boat dock in Sausalito around 12:25 p.m.

Sgt. Keith Boyd, assistant chief deputy coroner, said it appears the person jumped from the bridge, and the next of kin have not yet been notified.

More than 30 people jump to their deaths from the bridge each year.
