Man Jumps Off 129-Foot Roof Into Harbor, Barely Misses Dock

October 18, 2016

This is a video of death-wisher 8Booth jumping off the roof of a 129-foot building into the water of Newport Beach below and just BARELY missing the dock, just like how he BARELY missed the rock on this previous suicide attempt. Eventually, there won't be a barely. Also, you probably can't tell from the screencaps but he actually lands on the far side of the second pier, not in between the two. Man, I wonder just what kind of Death-repellant spray this guy uses, because that shit works.

Keep going for the video, and stick around for the wrist-cam footage after the other view.

Thanks to TD, who would feel a lot better knowing this guy makes charts and graphs and works out a bunch of physics and math equations before making a jump and not just eyeballing it all from the roof. Meh, I think I can make that.

    I just realized your avatar *isn't* a potato (or maybe the walnut from plants vs zombies)

    SPACE POTATOES!

  • Meh

    I keep thinking this would've been funnier had the roof-door been locked and the guy forgot his crowbar. Other than that, just ridiculous and insane.

    That guy is such a wannabe, not gonna be around long.

  • Wanna be who, though? Wanna be dead?

    and this so recently after an instagram daredevil died while trying to scale a brooklyn train... i like living thank you very much

    The no-running-start aspect is the craziest thing to me.

  • Jason Christopher

    This is the third video I've seen of this guy. I can not believe he isn't dead yet. These videos are just instant vertigo/panic for me.

    I just hope that when he finally does go splat there's multiple angles and it gets posted to the weird parts of the internet. It's what he would have wanted.

  • I'm thinking either this guy is really shitty at this and lucky as fuck... or he does these jumps multiple times to get as close and panic inducing as possible.

  • Draco Basileus

    Who would post the video if he failed?

  • asdfadfs

    medical examiner? probably put it on twitter with a #yolo

    damn millennials growing up and finally starting to get real jobs. I fear the future

    Give it time.
