When you're at the edge of a diving board, don't change your mind. 

Just take a deep breath and jump. The alternative could be much worse.

That's our takeaway from this video.

In the YouTube clip, two women are seen running towards to end of a seven-metre high platform in Lava Hot Springs water park in Idaho, US.

But at the last minute, one of the women has second thoughts about the jump.

She then reaches out and grasps the nearby railing, while her friend gleefully makes the leap. 

The woman loses her grip on the rails and hits the five-metre platform below.

She then somersaults and lands in the water.

Check out the scary dive here.
