    'Watch This!" Man Injured In Waterfall Jump

    FORT PAYNE, Ala. -- A Georgia man was hospitalized after jumping from the side of Alabama's DeSoto Falls and plunging 150 feet before hitting the water.
    The leap wasn't a suicide attempt since several witnesses reported that prior to the plunge, the man yelled, "Watch this."
    Tim Whitehead, superintendent of DeSoto State Park, said 23-year-old Jason Carter of Trion, Georgia, jumped from the east side of the canyon around 3 p.m. Monday. He was airlifted to Erlanger Hospital in Chattanooga, Tennessee, after rescue personnel spent three hours removing him from the canyon. Carter, who was treated for a back injury, was reported to be in stable condition yesterday.
    Whitehead said Carter landed in an area of water that's ten feet deep or less. He said Carter told rescuers that he hit something underwater. Carter managed to swim out, but couldn't make it any further.

    Idiot. It's a wonder he didn't killed or hurt even worse than he already was. Still funny too.
