For future reference, if your friends dare you to jump into some random puddle of water, just say no!

In video footage that has gone viral, a teenager and his friends come across a puddle outside a “Family Dollar” store. Of course, teenagers will be teenagers, and one of the guys dared their friend to jump into said puddle with his brand new shoes for $1.

So the boy took up the challenge — “for the kids,” of course — but what he didn’t know, is that the so-called “puddle” wasn’t even a puddle at all! He found that out as soon as he jumped into it, and he almost drowned because that “puddle” was actually a small sink-hole.

Pretty scary, indeed, but he managed to quickly pull himself out before anything bad happened, while his friends laughed hysterically in the background.


Kids, don’t try this at home.
