Perfect example of the idiocy that occurs daily in our National Parks in a effort to get views and likes on social media.
The following video comes from Utah’s Bryce Canyon National Park where a man took a running start, hopped a fence, lost his footing on the landing and nearly slid over the edge of a 800 foot drop to the canyon floor.
Park officials were not only concerned with the blatant disregard for staying within designated viewing areas but also the safety of visitors below:
“Considering that this occurred at one of the park’s most popular viewpoints and dislodged rocks onto the heavily trafficked Navajo Loop below, we are extremely thankful that no serious injuries occurred.” –Bryce Canyon National Park Spokesman Peter Densmore
Remember folks, protective fences are not only for your safety but those around you. This bozo is incredibly lucky he didn’t go over the edge or hit anyone below with rocks from his stupid stunt.
