A ladder would help
To the Editor,
They say the best things in life are free, and jumping off the bridge at State Beach on a warm sunny day is one of those things. I just started to jump off the bridge last summer, and boy, I realized what I was missing. There is nothing better than the rush you get when you realize that your feet have already left the wood railing and any second, you will meet the cool, refreshing ocean.
Unfortunately, there are often people who get injured. They cut their feet or knees on the barnacles as they climb out. A suggestion to prevent injuries would be for the town to install a ladder, so it is easier to safely get out of the ocean. Thank you for reading and taking my suggestion into consideration.
