The most dangerous part is after you survive the jump, he doesn't look like he can swim

those cajones.... man....

I'd be worried that I'd have too much momentum and would hit the bottom of the pool and injure something...

here's the story that went with it. apparently it's a thing...

Quote:
Watch this crazy guy leap from a roof terrace on top of a five story building to land in a swimming pool. Miraculously, he judges the distance right, the water is sufficiently deep and nobody else is around to be hurt. Unfortunately, this ends in disaster more often than you think.




In places like Spain, it is not the only idiot holiday-maker leaping from up high—it is an activity that carries on year after year, despite numerous deaths and horrendous spinal injuries. It's sometimes known as "balconing" because young tourists climb up hotels via balconies to get to parties and jump for thrills while severely inebriated.

Anyone remember the video of that guy who tried to do something similar and his face was literally split open but he survived?

Warning- VERY graphic, you might have nightmares after seeing this (if you haven't already):

I'm usually good at seeing those things and not being bothered by it but damn, that was brutal.

Yeah, first time seeing it since it first made the rounds on the internet. Kind of regretting watching it. I have no idea how he survived.

Every summer, a few drunken brits and germans have to be picked up with a dustpan for this exact reason in Mallorca.
