The excessive enthusiasm of individuals to take on new experiences may sometimes lead to death or permanent disasters and disabilities if the individual is not familiar with sufficient information, and this is what happened with Mourad Lamrabet, the Moroccan martial arts instructor.
Moroccan Mourad Lmrabet was killed during a vacation trip with his wife in the Spanish city of Malaga, while quickly jumping towards the rocks, and after he jumped, he understood that he had miscalculated the distance needed to avoid the rocks, to let out a terrifying scream before colliding with them.
The pioneers of social networking sites circulated a video of Murad Lamrabet during his jump, which was documented by his wife.
How do you avoid death when taking the adventure of jumping over heights?
Cliff jumping is a very dangerous sport, so you should be familiar with the following information and tips:
1. Knowing the dangers of jumping off a cliff:
Jumping into the water from a cliff puts a lot of pressure on the body, for example, if you jump from a height of 6 meters, you will hit the water at a speed of 40 km / h, which results in a collision strong enough to put pressure on the spine and break bones or give you a concussion of the mind (this is in the case jump horizontally to hit the entire body in the water) and even if you jump from the previous halfway distance (3 meters), your speed will be reduced to 27 km/h, which is a speed even cars will be damaged in the collision.
2. Pencil dive training
Before heading to the cliff, you must practice the “pencil dive” technique from a high jumping platform in the pool. It is a diving technique in which you make sure when jumping that the body is stretched and straight like a pencil, as you jump down with your feet keeping the arms attached to the sides of your body and your feet together and pointing together down to reduce the part of the body that will hit the water.
3. Explore the water
Before diving, you should swim in the area where you intend to jump to see how deep it is and there are no obstacles that could cause a serious problem.
4. Plan how to land in the water
Plan how you will land in the water, where you will exit and how to return to the cliff, as you may discover that the cliff you jumped from has no way to close to shore.
5. It is preferable to wear a swimsuit as it creates a layer between your body and the water to cushion the shock.
