Woman tries to leap over subway line, instantly regrets it

Let’s start with the obvious: Don’t try to jump over subway tracks. Ever. It’s further than it looks and it could have dire consequences, endangering not only your life but also those who inevitably have to hop onto the rails to help you get out before the next train rolls through. 

And if you just can’t resist, at least dress appropriately: Get some running shoes on and shed a few of those extra winter layers. Otherwise, you’ll end up like this poor woman who believed she could fly but found out that, alas, she cannot.  

That thud… that’s the sound of complete and total failure.
