Belly Flop

On this blog we have often reported the dangers of Tombstoning.

Tombstoning is the term used for the recreational jumping off cliffs, piers, jetties, quays and bridges.

We don’t want to spoil anyone's fun, but no one knows the dangers more than us.

We have to rescue people when they jump from cliffs and piers.

In the past 8 years there have been 20 deaths and 70 serious injuries.

Jumping from piers, cliffs, rocks or other structures into the sea can be very dangerous.

We warn people every year about the dangers of tombstoning so it was sad to see a television programme where celebrities dive into a swimming pool suggest Tombstoning was fun.

Diving in a pool is safe, but what about tombstoning? Know the dangers
