Oct. 25, 1970 I was 5 yrs. 11 months old when I would witness my father trying to throw my pregnant mother (in which he raped 4 months prior) off this bridge. My father's relatives were on this bridge that night. I found

a photo on the internet last yr. This is how I remember the bridge as I ran down that wooden deck to save my mother's life. This would be my father's second attempt on my mother's life that night.
