Dad leaps to his death as family films him jumping off cliff in Spain: video

A father vacationing with his family in Spain leaped to his death in a cliff-jumping stunt gone wrong, shocking video shows.

The harrowing footage captured from a nearby boat — where the man’s wife and son were filming — shows the 31-year-old Dutch tourist readying to make the 100-foot plunge Thursday in the Malgrats Islands.

The ill-fated daredevil took the plunge off the majestic cliff, but seemingly realized his leap wasn’t going to clear the sharp, jagged rocks below that he viciously clipped before crashing into the water while letting out a terrifying scream.

“Oh my God!” the man’s wife shouted as the short, chilling clip ends.

The body of the man, who wasn’t immediately identified, was reportedly found in the water following a search. It’s unclear if local authorities are investigating the deadly cliff-jumping stunt, which is popular among vacationers throughout Majorca.

I did this 25’ jump from Waimea Bay on the North Shore of Oahu.(not me pictured lol) The jump lands in the ocean, you just need to time when the wave is at it highest so you don’t hit the bottom. I did like two jumps to say I did it and had enough. There was a line of people doing this jump, no injuries the whole day I was there.


This guy was crazy. It doesn’t sound like this was a designated jump spot

How the hell did he think he was gonna clear that?!?!?! :wtf::mindblown:

This pandemic has led to so much mental health issues ...
I realize when seeing these videos that too many people lack physics?, not sure if that's the proper word, but they lack the ability to visualize a possible trajectory or similar mechanics. That jump alone required him hitting it right at the edge and then performing a triple jump to clear it sufficiently, and that's assuming he doesn't dive so deep into the water to meet any sharp rocks down there.
