ANSWER: Germany!

Here's the whole article:

BERLIN (Reuters) - A couple who climbed a suspension bridge in Germany to watch the sunrise sparked a major rescue operation when passers-by mistook their stunt for a suicide bid, police said Monday.

A driver called police after seeing a man sitting on top of the road bridge on the Main river near Frankfurt, and thought the 25-year-old planned to kill himself.

Squad cars, fire engines and a police speedboat with divers rushed to the scene.

"The man and his girlfriend climbed down from the bridge and said sheepishly they had just wanted to watch the sun come up," police spokesman Franz Winkler said. "It looks like they may have to foot the bill for it."

Firefighters put their "rescue" bill at 1,600 euros ($2,000). Police are still counting, he added.

Only five people got this one right (mine was the sixth Germany vote).

I have a couple more I'll do in the next day or so.

I said Germany mainly because I can't imagine there being many suspension bridges in Florida. Pretty flat country down there...

I flipped a coin basically, but ended up going Florida because of the $2000 comment.

ROFL. :-b

I voted for Germany because I just don't think American cops give a crap as much if someone is on a bridge. Especially in Florida where the cops are busy keeping an eye on OJ. :-D
