Stunt jumps gone wrong: man tries to launch car over retracting bridge

A CCTV footage shows the images of a silver vehicle racing towards a 5m bridge that is yet to be connected.

The driver, a 56- year- old man, was racing his car underneath the arm of the security barrier and then attempted to jump over the gap, movie style.

Unfortunately, he had misjudged the size of the gap and ended up being plummeted into the river. One would think this would injure him, but no. He got a few broken ribs and a punctured lung from falling onto a concrete barrier while attempting to get out of the water.
