As if viewing Victoria Falls wasn’t awe-inspiring enough, Iain Stewart – host of the BBC series “Rise of the Continents” – decided to get even closer. The 48-year-old Scottish Geologist jumped into a shallow pool at the very edge of the falls and had a look over the side.

This spot in the falls – known as the Devil’s Pool – is only relatively safe to plunge into when water levels are at their lowest from September to December. Unfortunately, deaths have been known to occur – with the last in 2009 after a tour guide went over the edge after saving a tourist from a similar fate.

A witness told the Sunday Mail: “The tour guide quickly grabbed the tourist’s hand and successfully pulled him back into the pool but in the process, he slipped and fell into the gorge down below.”

One resident said: “People should just be banned from going near that place because it is dangerous. On the Zimbabwean side, there are barriers put in place. That should be done on the Zambian side as well.

Check out Iain Stewart’s plunge below.
