Adventure seekers often push their limits and go for scary explorations. While people wink at the safety rules, the chances of tragedy are rife.
A thrill seeker’s attempt went wrong during his stunt at China’s Jiujinggou scenic spot in Susong County. The clip showing the man sliding down a swift stream of water and hitting a bed of the rocks has now gone viral. The man bounces after falling into a pool of rocks. “He is falling down! Oh my god!” a person is heard saying in the clip shared by South China Morning Post on Twitter.

Before this, a man who had slipped into freezing waters at the Golden Ears waterfall in Canada was rescued by a group of hikers in October last year. A video that had gone viral showed five Sikh men throwing a rope, fashioned out of their turbans, toward the man who fell into the pool. The Sikh men saved the man before the rescue team reached the location.
