    Default Darwin Award hopeful lept from balcony... missed the pool

    I don't give a shit that this guy was a so-called "BMX champion"; this is funny and unless there is any cause to believe the moron was pushed, why is the coroner wasting their time?

    Police say the coroner will investigate the death of BMX rider Dane Searls, 23, on Queensland's Gold Coast.

    Mr Searls fell from the first floor balcony of a Surfers Paradise bar on Sunday night while trying to jump into the pool, but missed.

    His life support was turned off overnight.

    Fans and friends have posted hundreds of tributes to the athlete on social media websites.

    23yrs old and this guy was joining "Schoolies Week" celebrations - those are parties for the new high school graduates. SMH.

    Yes, clearly he was stupid but how sad is that. He was only 23! Why didn't his friends talk him out of it?

    I wouldn't say this is funny but the guy is clearly a moron and is definately a candidate for a Darwin Award.

    Seriously stupid, but I'm surprised it killed him jumping from the first floor. I wonder how high up he was.

    I'm under the impression that he tried to dive (head first) into the pool from the first floor. Kersplat!! I'm not positive on that though but I can't think how else it could have killed him.

    there are many morons doing this shit, just search for "balcony jump into pool" on YT. i don't feel sorry for this guy or anybody else who dies doing this. they knew the risks and obviously didn't appreciate their life very much.
