A Five Story Leap Of Faith Into A Swimming Pool

When one of your friends has a pool close enough to jump into from the roof of the house people will take the leap, even if they’re just trying to show off, but would those same people attempt this insane leap?

This guy clearly isn’t worried about his own mortality as he jumps off the top of a building into a regular sized swimming pool five stories below, and surprisingly he’s not the only brave soul in town.

Holidaymakers line up each year in parts of Spain to do what they call “balconing”- leaping off roofs and balconies into pools, which results in many deaths and severe spinal injuries for those who don’t successfully complete the leap.

The rising number of people coming to the Balearic Islands simply to try their hand at “balconing” has authorities scrambling to stop the trend, but something tells me this guy’s not gonna stop leaping until he dies!
