Crazy Photo: Somebody Walked Across the Schuylkill

And apparently lived.

So a pit bull manages to get stranded on an ice chunk in the Delaware River, but the human gets across the Schuylkill? Look closely.

According to Reddit user csup92, who provided the photo, this is the story behind the walk:




I saw the man who did this, it was Sunday morning/afternoon, he walked about 1/4 of a mile down the river and fell in near MLK Blvrd, the police, firemen, and ambulance showed up and pulled him up on a stretcher (He was alive). Also should be noted he was wearing a suit.

Worth it? For our enjoyment, yes.

    Police, Fire & ambulance all respond over one idiot. Charge this moron for the services & manpower hours wasted.

    Suicide attempt? Perhaps!

    << — way to be a jackass about a probable suicide attempt.

    Hopefully it was someone from the Jackass crew. At least we know it wasn’t Ryan Dunn.
