SAN DIEGO (AP) - The San Diego City Council has called for a study on ways to prevent suicides on the landmark San Diego-Coronado Bridge.

The San Diego Union-Tribune (https://bit.ly/1T3heol ) says the council on Tuesday endorsed a study to determine whether the state could install barriers or nets on the two-mile span, which soars over San Diego Bay.

There have been more than 360 suicides since the bridge opened in 1969 and the Union-Tribune says the numbers have spiked over the last four years.

The bridge links San Diego and the city of Coronado, where the council also recently endorsed a suicide-prevention study.
