A Fourth of July pool party almost came to a tragic end after a couple of revelers decided to jump off the roof of the home where in actuality the gathering had been held.
Cellphone footage captures the heart-stopping moment a couple take a running jump from a two-story house, with the goal of landing in the pool below.
Although it seems the couple planned to jump together, the man ultimately ends up being first to make the leap, literally.

The man succeeds and leaps with abandon but the woman hesitates maybe not giving her enough clearance
He leaps into the air for a perfect splashdown and is closely followed by a woman who upon attaining the edge of the rooftop suddenly hesitates, causing her to slow her run.
As she reaches the point of no reunite, she falters and rather than leaping off the roof she ultimately ends up crashing into a patio shelter under which other partygoers are enjoying their drinks.
Her leg catches the edge of the shelter on her way to the floor and sees her flipping over before ending up in the pool headfirst.

It is only upon viewing the video many times that viewers can see how close to suffering serious injuries she came.
Although she ended up hitting part of the covering as she made her descent, had she maybe not, the woman would most likely have slammed straight into the concrete below or simply even have smashed her head onto the pool deck.
Thankfully, the video has a happy ending. With dust still hanging in the air from her collision with the building, she manages to raise her hands in the air and cheer at her remarkable survival, much to the hilarity of those gathered at the packed party.
