From the comments: "And this is the future generation that will run our country!?!"

To be fair, I don't think he'll be running anywhere after this.

As a Colorado University Alum. it always amuses me to see the antics of those wanna-be college students who attend that large high school on the plains....AKA... Colorado State.

Jesus, that looks really painful. But, I got to close was this retarded waste of oxygen, really?

So, I did some quick math. 3 stories is about 11 meters. Judging by the photo, I estimated the distance of the pool to be about 5 meters from the building. A little loose, I admit, but close enough.

Disregarding air resistance, an object should take about 1.5 seconds to fall 11 meters. In order to clear 5 meters, then, our f*cking moron is going to need an initial velocity of at least approximately 3.4 m/s. Humans, on average, walk at a pace of about 1.4 m/s, but the top running speed on record is 12.22 m/s. A 20 year old should be able to easily sprint in excess of 3 times their average walking speed, so, there's really no good reason why he couldn't have made the pool.

I am a little bored.

I fell about 8' from a ladder and *only* shattered my right heel. Permanent partial disability and I'll be in pain for the rest of my life, despite my recovery being well-above-average. This kid is farked. I hope his parents have good medical. My little injury alone incurred costs approaching $120K.

His body looks lifeless as he falls. Not even waving his arms in panic or anything.

He was unconscious from the outset and was pushed.
