The World’s Scariest Cliff Dives
There’s nothing like jumping off a cliff and into a body of water. The energy burst you get is unexplainable, and the rush is something you will never forget.
But that excitement goes hand in hand with danger. Cliff divers leap into waters of unknown depths and are frequently injured. The intense speed they build up while falling can lead to broken bones and even death as they hit the water.
Disorientation is also common and drowning is a huge risk. Adrenaline is pumping and the water’s depth can lead to panic. Also, if injury occurs, swimming to the surface can be a struggle.[slideshow:82526]
Make sure you get the proper training if you are attempting one of the scariest cliff dives. The smallest twist in your body can lead to serious injury and it is it possible to slip on the rocks and take a disastrous tumble.
