Like, is it a crime if you try to commit suicide and live?;?

Yep, and now he'll probably get billed for the rescue too. I can't recall ever hearing about what these suicide survivors thought about after they made the leap.

At impact the last thing through the minds of most them is their butt. The ones that survive made a clean splash.

He will be double depressed now. He wants to dian and failed at that as well. He will likely hang himself as soon as he gets the chance.

Police have to investigate and write a report on any attempted suicide... He will get billed for al the rescue services and I am sure he is placed under a Baker Act for psychaitric examination
