Do not climb these stairs alone in the fight against suicide

The attraction was closed after three people attempted suicide in one year. The Vessel is about 45 meters high and consists of 154 different staircases.

After the suicide attempts, several proposals were made to improve the safety of the attraction. One of the ideas was to raise the glass barriers. That writes the New York Post.


Ultimately, it was decided to only allow visitors in groups of at least two. There will also be more security at The Vessel.

“We will also be extra alert to risky behavior among our visitors,” a spokesperson for the attraction told the newspaper. In addition, there will be warnings on the railings and on the tickets. For those who need help, there is contact information from experts. “We are doing everything we can to make this attraction as safe as possible.”
