Man Pretending To Fall From Bridge Falls From Bridge

 

A 21 year old man driving north on Highway 77 stopped on a bridge crossing the Minnesota River so that his passenger could urinate. The 23 year old passenger climbed onto a ledge of the bridge looked at his friend and pretended to fall.

"He then in fact fell," says the release from the Bloomingtin Police Dept. The 23 year old felt about 30 feet into a marshy area and a chair lift was used to retrieve him.

The man, unnamed in this story, was transported to Hennepin County Medical Center where he received treatment and is said to be in a stable condition.

  This happens a lot in Minnesota...  
 
It is so cold up here in the winter that people's brains freeze and in the spring when they thaw out they reanimate and do crazy things. They are not much different from zombies except they eat lutefisk instead of brains.

Particulars of the Darwin Award rules specify the idiot must in fact successfully removal themself from the genepool permanently.
