A rookie Missouri City police officer was forced to leap off the side of a bridge and take a 30-foot plunge after a woman nearly drove her car into him.

Officer Kenneth Lewis and his partner had pulled over a driver for a traffic violation when allegedly intoxicated woman, Christie Biggers, crashed her car into the stopped vehicle.

People were so furious about this Pepsi ad that Pepsi pulled it after just one day. Watch it here and decide if it's offensive:

Lewis jumped over a roadway barrier to avoid being hit and landed 30-feet below on a rocky bank. Lewis reportedly wasn’t aware of the actual length of the drop until he jumped.

Lewis was flown to Memorial Hermann Hospital by a medical helicopter. He suffered a partially ruptured aorta and a fractured pelvis, but is recovering in stable condition.
