Scared of heights? There might be a number remedies which may help you face your fear. However, what British Youtuber Shah Faisal Shinwari did is not one of them.

As a dare, Shinwari decided to jump off the Tower Bridge in London headlong into river Thames. He splashed awkwardly into the river and had to swim hard to fight the strong currents. His friend, who was shooting the jump from the bridge, however, seemed more concerned about his shoe and constantly reminded him to get his back as it floated away.

Luckily for Shinwari, he was rescued by authorities, and was treated for exhaustion and infection from the water before being released and returned home. He has made a full recovery now.

“It originally was a dare from one of my subscribers,” he wrote when he uploaded the video on his channel, explaining the reason behind the jump.

Later Shinwari tweets that this was his ‘stupidest video idea to date’ and that he would never do such a thing again. Hard way to learn a lesson, indeed.
