YouTuber Captures Moment Jump Off Balcony Into A Swimming Pool Went Horribly Wrong
Warning: this includes extremely graphic video footage.
As if it wasn't already clear that jumping off a balcony into a swimming pool is an absolutely terrible idea, YouTube daredevil 8Booth has found it out the hard way.
After attempting several lower pool drops successfully, he filmed an attempt from a third floor balcony, which went terribly, terribly wrong and has resulted in some pretty life-altering injuries.
Posting the video on YouTube, it shows the awful moment where instead of landing centrally in the pool at the Pacific Edge Hotel in Laguna Beach, his feet catch the concrete edge and are smashed as he plunges head first into the water.
While the first few pieces of footage show the accident from afar, the final and hardest clip is taken from the camera strapped to his body and captures the sickening moment 8Booth realises he isn't going to make it.
Now in hospital with his shattered feet and heels in casts, he also included some pretty graphic images of his injuries in the video.
Obviously the footage is very shocking, so if you have a weak stomach we would recommend not watching the video below:
Never has the phrase 'don't try this at home' seemed more apt and many fans are naturally horrified at the extent of his injuries.
One said: "Congratulations, you will never walk the same again. Getting X-fixes on your ankles means you will never be able to run again and you'll never jump from a building again," while another added: "Damn.. I feared this would happen eventually.. That being said, i hope you get well soon man!"
Now how about watching a video of guys and girls trying to guess what weird sex toys are for? Ok then...
