This is the moment a motorcyclist tried to cross a tiny footbridge for pedestrians—and face-planted into an open sewer.

Onlookers apparently tried to warn the rider not to cross the plank, but after considering his options he decided to press ahead.

But unsurprisingly he couldn’t control the huge bike on the foot-wide bridge and toppled headfirst into a cesspool in India.

One onlooker apparently said, “Initially, he looked a little nervous, but when the man decided to go ahead with the plan anyway, people started cheering him. The crowd knew that they were up for a good show anyway. If he managed to ride across the plank and reach the other side, it would be an amazing stunt to watch, and if the biker fell 10 ft from the wooden bridge into the slush, they would be able to enjoy that hilarious moment, too.”

Locals hauled him and his bike out of the mud and he escaped uninjured.
