A Sensational Suicide. [Newspaper Article] — Morwell Advertiser and Weekly Chronicle — 31 December 1887
A Sensational Suicide. A suicide under sensational circumstances was witnessed at the Falls-bridge between 10 and 11 o'clock on Sunday morning. A young woman, well dressed, and wearing a nicely trimmed straw hat, climbed the rail ing of the bridge in the presence of a sprinkling of spectators, and leaped deliber ately into the river, a distance of about 30 feet. A young fellow named John Reardon, of Burns-street, South Melbourne, who witnessed the desperate plunge, jumped in after her without a moment's delay, and took hold of her with the intention of pulling her into shallow water, but failed owing to the stubborn resistance offered, &nbsp; and she was obliged to find the rest she sought in the river's bosom. When Rear don caught hold of the young woman she screamed and said " I don't want to be saved." Reardon believes that he would have been drowned with her if he had re tained his hold. Several other persons who were onlookers made no attempt to help Reardon, otherwise ...
