The video is only 11 seconds long, but it took less than that for a young woman to take a horrifying fall from a 22-foot diving platform at an Idaho water park.

The woman was getting ready to jump from the platform with a friend. But it looks like she changed her mind at the last second.

It was a costly mistake.

She tried to grab onto the rail but she couldn’t hold on. She slammed into the diving board below before hitting the water.

Here’s the good news: She reportedly escaped with just an injured finger.

Since being uploaded on July 12, the YouTube video posted by Katie Jorgensen and taken at Lava Hot Springs water park in Idaho, has been viewed more than 1.5 million times.
