Sorry for bridge stunt: Teen Jumps Off London’s Tower Bridge, A daredevil teen has apologized after he was filmed jumping off an iconic London bridge into the Thames River and had to be rescued by emergency services.
“Here is an unedited version of me jumping off London’s famous Tower Bridge into the River Thames,” 17-year-old Shah Faisal Shinwari, who goes by “Carnage,” says in a YouTube video posted Thursday. “This was later very regretted by me and I realized it was the stupidest idea ever. Thanks for watching!”
The video shows him leaping off Tower Bridge and into the brackish and fast-moving waters. He is then seen lying on a dock, spitting up and receiving first aid.
This was my stupidest video idea to date and it will never happen again, I promise.

The stunt was swiftly condemned by London police and the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI).
“We are extremely disappointed that this young man chose to risk his life in this way. He was very lucky that the outcome wasn’t more serious,” RNLI spokesman Tony Wafer told NBC News. “We are glad that this young man regrets his actions, however we would strongly discourage anyone from doing anything like this.”
