Olympic Diver Comes Terrifyingly Close To Smashing Head Off Solid Platform

Belarusian diver, Vadim Kaptur, came terrifyingly close to death yesterday evening as his head came with 0.3mm of the solid concrete diving platform he had just jumped from. 

Viewers across the world were left open mouthed as Kaptur jumped backwards from the platform and performed a forward dive, but as he swooped down towards the solid platform his forehead came less than inch from hitting the high board at a rapid speed.

Commentators on the event said that if any contact was made it would’ve been almost certain death, reports Yahoo.

Here’s the video. P.S. – wait for the second angle to ensure max tension:

Unfortunately, hitting the springboard and hitting a concrete platform are two entirely different spectacles so Kaptur is certainly one incredibly lucky guy.

If I was him I’d try and be a little less reckless next time.
