Dangerous ‘Death Diving’ Trend Takes Over TikTok
A new TikTok trend is taking hold, but people are calling the stunt dangerous. People are jumping into bodies of water from high levels and intentionally landing with a belly flop, which they're "death diving." One person even threw herself off of a platform 81-feet in the air, about 48-feet higher than an Olympic diving board. As fun as it might look, experts say definitely do not do it. Jim Spiers of Stop Drowning Now says the best way to enter the water is by a vertical jump.
