Three Pier Jumpers Rescued by Firefighters

Would you jump off the IB pier?

Three Pier Jumpers Rescued by Firefighters
Three victims - two women and one man - were towed to shore by firefighters who deployed ropes attached to life preservers after getting stranded when they jumped off the Imperial Beach pier Tuesday night.

A fourth jumper - male - swam to shore leaving the other three crying for help and clinging to pier pilings - for dear life.  

The male victim was taken to the hospital, none of the jumpers names have been released, and they were not arrested at the scene.

Have you ever tried to jump from the pier? If not, would you?
