The Rainbow Bridge (彩虹桥) is the first choice for those wishing to commit suicide by jumping off a bridge in Chengdu, according to a report in the Tianfu morning post.
The report came after a woman threatened to jump on the afternoon of July 28, devasted by the results of her child's paternity test and her husband's ensuing anger. The woman had been impregnated by rape; she did not dare to tell her husband, but when the child was born, bearing no resemblance to the alleged father, he became suspicious. The child was already 6 years old before the couple had a paternity test, and the "father" was outraged that he had been deceived for six years.
The woman's husband, fire fighters, and rescue workers were able to persuade her down after several hours.
The Jinjiang (River) near Jiuyan Qiao is another suicide hotspot, seeing over 100 suicides annually.
