When Mr. Roth visited the spot to film last summer, teens pressured him into jumping.
“I was on the cliffs, my crew was on the boat and there’s all these kids just yelling at you to jump and I was really scared, but I had to jump,” he said.
Mr. Roth described the jump as “a moment of complete freedom.”
“It’s high enough that you can have a distinct thought process as you’re leaping and before you hit the water. There’s a moment where it is just incredibly freeing and I do understand why the guys jump,” he said.
