Keegan Goudle was strolling home from Lollapalooza on Saturday night in Chicago, when he noticed something odd. It was a sopping wet guy who had reportedly jumping off the Columbus Street bridge, just for shits ‘n gigs. Sure enough, there was video.

Then, he almost killed himself, as he nearly jumped right before a tour boat drove under the bridge. A flurry of fantastically well thought out decisions. Also, the average temperature of the Chicago River, even in late summer? Low to mid 60s. Probably even lower at night. Refreshing.
