Once you get to the edge of a high dive, you better just jump. A last-second change of heart is the last thing that should happen.

In this clip, a female swimmer and her friend decided to jump off the 22-foot high dive at a pool at Lava Hot Springs water park in Idaho. The woman changed her mind at the last second, but she couldn't keep from falling off the platform. She paid the price for changing her mind that late, as she got flipped by the low diving board and hit the water hard.

It was a scary moment, but she appeared to be fine. She only reported a slightly injured finger.
