I often wondered what the results were from the investigation into the report of the California kid who fell from the Capilano Suspension Bridge. The coroner's report said he was high on Acid.
Teen fell to death while high on LSD

It's the grimmest example of a "bad trip" imaginable.
According to a B.C. Coroner's report, Daniel Cho, a popular 17-year-old American music student who loved to make hip hop beats, jumped a protective railing and fell down a cliff at Capilano Suspension Bridge in June while in the throws of an LSD-induced delirium.
Coroner Mark Coleman concluded there was no evidence that Cho intended to harm himself on June 6 when he stepped over a 1.2-metre-high protective railing at a viewing platform and plunged 30 metres to his death.
Cho was on a class trip to Vancouver with his music class from the San Francisco area. Three boys including Cho consumed LSD while on a bus from Seattle to Vancouver.
By the time the class got to Capilano Suspension Bridge two of the boys "were no longer feeling any significant effects" from the LSD, according to Coleman.
But Cho was seen bumping into other people, tripping and falling off steps along the walkway, and acting aggressively, which was out of character.
A trip chaperone spotted him climbing over a protective fence and told him to stay on the marked path, and Cho complied at first.
Later, Cho was found in a ravine below, and died of multiple blunt-force injuries, including severe brain injuries, Coleman ruled.
