Imagine having a Toyota Camry dropped on you from 22 foot above your head.
That’s essentially what happened to Belgian photographer Bruno Brokken who had 396 gallons, or a thousand pounds of water dropped on him from a firefighting plane near Girona, Spain last week, during his take on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.
The Telegraph reports the 51-year-old was “knocked to the ground unconscious after the plane being flown by a friend discharged its load of water above his head.”
Ouch… just, ouch..
Brokken’s condition was initially described as “critical” but he is now expected to make a full recovery.
The Ice Bucket Challenge has been massively successful in raising money and awareness for research, but not everyone has come out unscathed.
A few days ago, a Scottish teenager drowned in a cliff-diving stunt, believed to be inspired by the social media craze.
