LAGUNA BEACH (CBSLA.com) — A video of a man jumping off a cliff near Crystal Cove State Beach has viewers involuntarily clenching.
The video, posted by YouTube and Instagram user 8booth, shows a man skirting a fence along a ragged, rocky cliff and gingerly hiking down to the edge of the before he pauses and jumps.
The jumper, who frequently records jumps from other high points with a GoPro camera, freefalls for about five seconds toward the rocks before splashing feet first into the water.
In the information posted with the YouTube video, 8booth comments, “I walked away from this jump with a minor scrape on my back. How? I do not know. All I do know is that I probably won’t be attempting this jump any time soon!”
The video was posted on Facebook by Crystal Cove California, which said it was an “Incredibly stupid idea! This guy is lucky he didn’t get killed.”
