Woman Changes Mind About High Diving Board, Falls 22 Feet (Video)

| by Michael Allen

A young woman recently changed her mind about jumping off a diving board at the Lava Hot Springs water park in Idaho, and it almost ended in disaster.

A bystander filmed (video below) the woman trying to abort a dive off a 22-foot board, grabbing onto a side rail, falling, slamming into the board below, turning a somersault and dropping into the water below, notes Uproxx.com.

According to the Daily Mail, the young woman suffered only a slightly injured finger.

The Lava Hot Springs park bills itself as a "diver's paradise," but tells people to read all rules before using the diving boards and to sign a waiver.
