Worst Nightmares: Hiker's GoPro Captures His Fall From Suspension Bridge After Cable Snaps

October 16, 2015

This is hiker Adrien Whistle's GoPro footage of a New Zealand suspension bridge failing, sending him and his fellow hikers 25-feet into the water below (PROTIP: pause the slow-motion version that plays after the regular speed version while they're falling for some pretty cool stills). Thankfully, nobody was seriously injured. Probably because of the water. If that had been dry land below them it might be another story. Regardless, I am never walking, riding my bike, driving, or otherwise crossing another bridge in my entire life. I don't even feel comfortable jetpacking over a bridge anymore.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Douglas, who refuses to go anywhere without wrapping himself in bubble-wrap first.
