VIDEO: Woman's diving board fail goes viral

Follow-through is important when you’re running toward the end of a diving board.  Unfortunately for the woman featured in the video below, she hesitated just before she neared the end of the 7-meter platform.  It all looks pretty painful from there.

In a video posted to YouTube earlier this month, the woman attempts a jump with a friend from the middle of Lava Hotsprings water park’s three platforms.  While her friend continues, presumably landing in the water unscathed, the woman hesitates at the last second.

An onlooker captured the awkward tumble on video, showing the woman grabbing the end of the platform for safety but continuing to fall.  She hits the lower board before splashing into the water.

NBC’s Today reports the woman miraculously walked away from the accident with nothing but a pinky injury.

The video was posted on YouTube July 12 and has more than 1.6 million views.
