A YouTube video showing a high dive gone wrong at an Idaho water park gained more than 1.8 million views after the video went viral.

An unidentified woman was preparing to jump from the high platform at Lava Hot Springs Water Park, when she was apparently spooked by a man running up behind her and jumping before she had a chance.

She fell from the high platform onto the platform below, before falling into the water.

A pool spokesperson told the NBC affiliate in Pocatello that the woman escaped the accident with only a strained pinky.

The pool requires all jumpers to sign a waiver before attempting any platform dives.
