YouTuber fractures skull during jump from Texas bridge

A YouTuber chasing his “dreams” fractured his skull after leaping into a river from atop a massive Texas bridge last week.

Saa Fomba recorded last Monday’s stunt at Austin’s Pennybacker Bridge, posting it to his YouTube channel on Friday after several days in the hospital.

The footage shows the daredevil as he hatches the dangerous stunt.

“Hopefully this video will motivate you to chase after your dreams,” Fomba said to the camera as he prepared to jump into the Colorado river. “I don’t see no fun in living a normal life.”

A woman later records Fomba scaling up an arch of the bridge. At the apex of the arch, Fomba raises his arms into the air before wildly jumping to the water below, the video shows.

A boater pulled Fomba from the water and he is later seen lying on the shore until first responders arrive.

Later in the video, Fomba gave a video update on his condition from a hospital room.

“This is day three in the hospital. I can walk … I fractured part of my skull,” he said.

“People are texting me ‘is it worth it?’ Fomba said. “No one wished to get hurt, but it’s always worth it chasing your dreams.”

Officials told CBS Austin that Fomba was taken to St. David’s South Austin Medical Center.

It is unclear if he will face any criminal charges for the stunt.
