Eyewatering moment banker crashes through glass panel into a pool when 30th birthday diving stunt goes horribly wrong

A DAREDEVIL stunt went dramatically wrong for a banker who smashed through a windowpane while jumping into a swimming pool at his boozy 30th birthday bash.

Dimitry Prigorodov hurled himself through a window last week, hoping to dive straight into a swimming pool below.

But the banker from Moscow did not jump far enough and stomach-churning footage shows Dimitry diving head first out of the window and into the glass.

After colliding with the glass panel Dimitry then fell into the swimming pool.

Dimitry said: "It was my birthday and I rented a cottage to celebrate my anniversary.

"We were celebrating and drinking alcohol.

"It seemed to us that we could try and jump in principle."

During the jump he suffered torn ligaments a bruised chest and has since had two operations to heal his injured hands and legs.

Despite his injuries, Dimitry posted the clip on his social media and says he does not regret his misjudged jump because the footage became popular among his friends.

Although the cottage where the stunt took place was rented, Dimitry did not have to pay for the damage he caused by hitting the glass panel as the rental contract had not been drafted correctly.

This horrible incident comes after The Sun Online reported on a daredevil stunt which went dramatically wrong for a man who smashed headfirst onto concrete while trying to leap into a pool from a roof.

The stomach-churning footage of the unidentified man leaves viewers wincing as he misses the water by inches, and his body slams the ground.
