We’ve probably all had someone say to us, “If someone told you to jump off a bridge would you do it?”, at least once in our lives.
But Shah Faisal Shinwari took that to a new extreme, jumping of the Tower Bridge in London into a fast-flowing River Thames, just because a YouTube subscriber dared him to…
What he didn’t expect was for it to all go wrong!
He suffered exhaustion and an infection from river water he swallowed. He was rescued by a lifeboat, and claims it was the “stupidest idea”.
This was my stupidest video idea to date and it will never happen again, I promise.

“It originally was a dare from one of my subscribers, and I attempted it as I like doing crazy s***,” he wrote.
“This was later very regretted by me and I realized it was the stupidest idea ever. Thanks for watching!”
