VIDEO – Jump from Mostar bridge goes horribly wrong

By  Jun 02, 2018

The tradition off leaping of the old stone bridge in Mostar goes back over 450 years. Diving from the 27-metre high bridge into the icy cold waters of the Neretva River requires skill and training. The jump from the bridge, which is under protection if UNESCO, was originally a test of bravery for young men and a sign of their maturity.

Jumping, diving or leaping off the bridge isn’t easy and requires hours and hours of practise. And if it goes wrong, it can go horribly wrong, as this video uploaded onto social media by Festina Lente shows.

This man won’t forget his jump into the Neretva river for a long time, and neither will his face, looks painful.
