"I saw it as well. I also was calling 911. But I didn’t see it as soon as you. It kinda looks like she was trying to drive off the ledge." - Christiana Hooper Mann
"I called it in when she was further at the top also. I circled around trying to get a better video and was on with dispatch when she hit the edge. So scary." - Ashleey Hammond
"Why didn’t someone try to get over there and help instead of standing there watching? I see videos like this and I wonder what on lookers are thinking? What if it was someone you knew in that video, wouldn’t you want someone standing around to at least try to help?" - Russell Jones
