Man and child, Story Bridge deaths
Police are treating the deaths of a man and toddler who fell from Brisbane's Story Bridge this morning as a murder suicide.
Police said the man — thought to be the child's father — rode his bike on to the bridge and threw the child over the railing.
He then leapt to his death.
What is the real issue? Barriers or Mental Health Senior Lecturer from School of Social Policy Studies at Flinders University Dr Keith Miller speaks with Greg Cary about the tragedy on the Story Bridge yesterday.
The bicycle was found on the footpath on the outbound side of the bridge.
A witness contacted police about 3am.
Police said the child was not the subject of any custody battle and the man and child's next of kin had been notified.
An outbound lane of the Story Bridge was closed before 8am, causing peak hour traffic disruption.
Police are expected to view footage from the 14 cameras on the bridge and another eight "pan and zoom" cameras aimed at the structure.
Frustrated residents have in the past called for screens to be erected to stop people falling off the bridge.

The negative comments about this terrible incident involving a man and his son are made i feel by those whom have never been touched by deep, deep depression, that's my take on the matter for what it's worth.roger Thursday 1 March, 2012 - 4:37 PM
How disgusting that the media have portrayed this revolting excuse for a man as such a wonderful person. And also to those who knew him please remember that he THREW HIS SON FROM A BRIDGE - before you start praising what a caring human being he was.Tracy Thursday 1 March, 2012 - 1:53 PM
i do not feel sorry for this man that jumped of the bridge.if he was such a nice man why did he not find another way to solve his problems. he had choices.he could have talked to his wife.he could have talked to a friend.he could have left his beautiful little boy with his mum.why did he have to take this little boy with him.in my eyes that makes him a coward that has not got the guts to face his problems.he had to use his little boy as a shield and payback to his wife.why did he not jump by himself ? he did not even have the guts to do that by himself.i'm so sorry for that little boy.rest in piece little dude.lee kool Wednesday 22 February, 2012 - 5:35 PM
I have read s few things on how great this man was a family man and teacher - but I can't get past thinking of how scared, confused and terrified the little boy would have felt that I can't get past it. I don't care how good he was to other people's children when he treated his own in such a spiteful way.Natalie Wednesday 22 February, 2012 - 4:48 PM
This is very sad but if this man really wanted to end his life which he obviously did, he would have found another way to do it if there were higher barriers on the walkway on the bridge. I know for a fact that people who are desperate and have these thoughts get enough help. If you have problems you want to get away from, talking to Life-line does not help.Barb Smith Tuesday 21 February, 2012 - 4:23 PM
I had occasion to walk across the Story Bridge a couple of weeks ago and was a little taken aback that there weren't higher safety barriers on the walkway. Not that there should have to be, but that just seems to be the norm nowadays.
I hope that the rest of this family have all the support they need.John of Caloundra Monday 20 February, 2012 - 1:46 PM
