One of those only in Florida stories from the Sun-Sentinel-
POMPANO BEACH -- A man committed suicide by hanging himself from a tree along Interstate 95 near Atlantic Boulevard Tuesday morning, Broward Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Veda Coleman-Wright said.Hangings by the side of the road that cause a traffic jam, A whale necropsy on a Florida Keys beach. Isn't this a great state or what?(Sarcastic laughter time)
Northbound rush-hour I-95 commuters were slowed by the sight of the man hanging from a tree to the right of the shoulder just north of the Atlantic Boulevard entrance ramp about 7 a.m.
Authorities temporarily shut down the entrance ramp while they investigated, Florida Highway Patrol Sgt. Mark Wysocky said. They also closed off a portion of the right lane. Traffic has since resumed its normal traffic pattern.
