Cliff diving is deemed a dangerous sport, with many destinations banning the activity, often called ‘tomb-stoning’.
One young woman attempted to try it out for herself to join her friend already in the water.
Her friend appears to have already successfully made the jump, thankfully.
The poor woman caught on camera sadly didn’t make it so well.

The viral video shows the woman in a bikini leap from the top of the cliff.
She extends her hands into a star shape, looking like she is enjoying it at that instant.
As she tried to turn it into a dive, her legs manage to catch behind her and her balance ends up being off.
In a painful crash, she ends up hitting the water on her head with her knee also slamming into it.

The Imgur video has since had over 46,000 views, with many offering their own ironic dive scores.
One user remarked: “5/7 on amusement, 1/7 on dive, 1.5/7 on posture, 7/7 on stupidity.”
Others were more sympathetic to the poor woman’s attempt.
Another kindly wrote: “She did look very graceful for one split second.”

Another woman was also caught in a failed attempt when jumping from a cliff.
Joined by a man who appears to be her boyfriend next to her, she makes the leap.
Instantly she regrets it and grabs onto her boyfriend’s foot in an attempt to stay on the rock.
Sadly this fails and she spins into the water at a painful angle.
