On Monday, 12th November 2018, 18 year old Tristen Bailey fell from Margaret McDermott Bridge on I-30 West in Texas.
Bailey and his friends were returning home from the Dallas stars game when they stopped on the bridge to take the selfie. Bailey climbed over the concrete barrier with the aim of getting a perfect picture with the Dallas skyline behind them. He fell from the bridge and was rushed to Methodist Medical center in Dallas. Doctors exclaim that Bailey was incredibly lucky to have made out alive from the fall.
Bailey is out of hospital and revealed his story to public with the hope that others learn from his near death experience.
