In November 2005 the San Francisco Chronicle published a story that said there were 26 known survivors.
That is out of 1,300 since 1937.
Here’s a quote from the story regarding one of the survivors:
The pain was indescribable.
The impact had broken his back and shattered vertebrae.
And then he began, with the instinct for survival of any animal, to swim upward toward light and air.
When he broke through the surface of the water he was stunned to be alive, and momentarily thought he was hallucinating.
He tried to swim toward a bridge pylon, but his pain overwhelmed him and he began to sink beneath the water again, struggling against dying.
He managed to bring his head above water when he felt something – something alive, a creature – brush his legs.
To add something from the Associated Press:
About 98 percent of jumps from the bridge end in death.
