Meet Jimmy Jennings of Lafayette, Louisiana. Jimmy is very, uh, “special,” and when he gets bored, he decides to do some rather idiotic things. Like, say, jumping off a bridge into a fast-moving river.
Jimmy Jennings of Lafayette is seen on video jumping from Interstate 10 in Butte La Rose on Friday into the Atchafalaya River below.
Jennings told KATC-TV he got the idea while he was stranded in standstill traffic on the Atchafalaya Basin Bridge due to a 10-car pileup ahead.
While driving Kyle home from Texas, we were stuck on an Arkansas highway for an hour or so, and neither of us decided to run through the woods. Just put the seat back, turn on the radio, and just wait for the accident to clear.
“When I hit the water, my shoulder went up, I kind of hurt my shoulder, but I started swimming,” Jennings said. “I couldn’t get back to the bank because the current was way too strong.”
That’s because you’re a jackass who risked his own life, and the lives of the rescuers trying to find you.
What Jennings didn’t expect was a shoulder injury from the impact of hitting the water. Plus, the strong river current kept him from swimming directly to shore. The jump set off an hours-long search for Jennings.
One wonders how many emergency calls went unanswered because first responders were trying to locate this douche? Congratulations dude, you’re Internet infamous, and that’s not a good thing.
