Florida Man 'Falls 60 Feet' Into Spring After Branch He Was on Breaks

A man who fell from what he described as a 60-foot-tall tree into a creek in Vernon, Florida, emerged from the fall with just minor injuries.

Florida man Christopher James Sikes Smalley was preparing to jump from a tree at local swimming spot Crystal Springs Vernon when the branch that was supporting his weight broke, causing him to plummet into the water below.

Footage shows Smalley hitting and breaking another branch before he lands in the water.

Speaking to Storyful, Smalley said he usually jumps from a smaller branch and that it was his first time jumping from that height.
