I couldn't believe that.I'm pretty devout, but the fear of burning is one of my major terrors. I talked to the priest about it and he assured me that they had not suicided, but simply chosen how they would die. That's a completely different thing. The two people falling while holding hands was the worst. See heights are my other major fear. I think if it came to that I'd jump, because the pain would be over instantly.
Not a small number of people recognized someone they knew from pictures or TV footage. That's why you don't see that in shows broadcasted nowadays, except from great distances.
