Having visited Eastbourne and Beachy Head last year, it is such a beautiful place but very scary when you are at the very top. I was petrified and couldn't wait to get back down to the car park.
It just proves to me what a very brave man Keith was to do what he did for so long. Also getting get up at 4.30 every day to patrol free of charge and at least try and prevent someone taking their life whilst putting himself in such serious danger.
Well done Keith, Maggie would be so proud of you.I hope you and Val have a long happy healthy life together, you deserve it.
Keith's story is one of strength, great courage and some might say madness ( in the danger he would put himself in in order to save a life ) but all in all, it was done with the best possible intentions.
The problems he encountered over health and safety and with various people and authorities were disgusting. At the end of the day, he was just an ordinary guy trying to make a difference but coming under increasing fire from certain people. It should not matter who saves a life, as long as a life gets saved!
He takes the reader on an emotional roller coaster of a ride of his good days, but also through the depths of his many dark hours. His way of dealing with grief was to do something positive, but in doing so almost drove him to the same plight of those he tried to save.
For anyone who has lost someone through suicide or has thought about it for themselves, you should read this book to give you a greater insight into what makes people get to that stage.
You realise with the majority of the people who end up on the edge, just a wake up call of the right words can be enough to get their lives back on track.
A heartwarming insight into the humanity of Keith Lane.
He is a remarkable man who despite his own personal loss reached out to other;s in despair.
All the best to keith.
