EXCLUSIVE

Tony Scott's suicidal jump off an L.A. bridge was witnessed by numerous boaters.
Tony Scott's suicidal jump off an L.A. bridge was witnessed by numerous boaters, including a group of passengers on a harbor cruise ... some of whom took photos and shot video.

One of the passengers tells TMZ ... "He landed right next to our tour boat, and many of us saw the whole thing."

The white bar in the bottom right corner of the picture on the right is the rail from the harbor cruise boat.

As we previously reported, Scott jumped off the Vincent Thomas Bridge around 12:30 PM ... his body was fished out of the water by the L.A. Port Police a short time later.  We're told the bridge is roughly 200 feet above the water.

Officials say Scott left a suicide note, but the details of the letter have not been released.

Scott was 68 years old.

If he wanted to do this, the least he could have done is do it at night so no one else had to witness it. If the stories of him having inoperable brain cancer are true, I feel horrible for him and his family, but he didn't have to cause nightmares for other people.

really! really?    

Some believe that terminal patients choose suicide so as not to burden their families with long-term care and grief. If this is true it doesn't seem like an intentionally selfish act in these cases. Probably a symptom of the narrow vision stemming from dealing with the shock of imminent mortality. So sad if these were the cir***stances for Tony. RIP...
