It seems like such a simple setup: tie a rope to a tree branch, swing from it, land in the water. But it all goes terribly wrong so very often.

Fortunately, these people didn't set their rope swings up over some giant canyon or anything, so when [SPOILER ALERT] the rope breaks or the branch snaps, there's no imminent threat of death or paralysis or any other serious situation. Instead, we can just enjoy watching humanity lose, once again, in our long-running battle against nature.
