"Eyes Wide Shut"

Body Found In South Jersey Lake Identified « CBS Philly Saw this story today on the "Drudge Report" of a lady who aparently while sleepwalking walked out of her house in her pajamas in the middle of the night, walked down the neighborhood street and then fell off of a railroad trestle into a lake below and drowned. Now, I'm not sure how someone can be asleep and do this without bumping into something along the way such as the curb, a mailbox, a car (moving or stationary), a discarded can or bottle, or a million other potential hazards as well as turning at the proper time on the road to go to the railroad bridge and then get out on this bridge probably about halfway then fall in for the ultimate "wet dream" and then die. The video shows that lady's car had a dent on the left front bumper. Maybe this lady hit something that made her so upset that she wanted to die. Maybe this lady was a very skilled sleepwalker and this was a tragic accident.

There is a television show called "1,000 Ways To Die" that I have seen a few times, perhaps you have as well where they describe unusual ways that people have died over the years. Although the subject matter is somewhat "morbid" to say the least; this show is actually quite funny and interesting as they recreate the way the people have died and describe in detail the cause of death.

What do you think happened in this case? There were no witnesses to see this lady fall into the lake with her "eyes wide shut". Similar to the old song "Ode to Billie Joe" where Billie Joe McAllister up on Choctaw Ridge threw something off of the Tallahatchee Bridge and jumped off the bridge as sung by Bobbie Gentry; yeah baby, we may never know the real story. Oh well, please pass the biscuits.
