Man leaps off roof of two-storey home into paddling pool to win £50 bet


A window cleaner signals to his pals before leaping off a terraced house into a paddling pool – for a £50 bet.

Dad Mizzy Duffy, 40, assesses the 20ft drop before landing bum-first in the water.

He then emerges to shout “freezing” and walks off cradling his crotch.

Pal Kieran Oldham, who filmed the stunt in Rochdale, Greater Manchester, said: “We thought he was going to chicken out.”

But people who watched the 48-second clip slammed his antics.

In the 48-second clip Mizzy can be seen bum-shuffling along the edge of the roof and contemplating the jump.

As he perches near the gutter his pals can be heard shouting ‘he’s sh*tting it now, sh*tting it’.

Mizzy retorts: “I’m just debating whether to f***ing somersault or…”

Kieran says: “Somersault? Yeah right, just do it, just do it lad.”

Kieran said: “If there’d been any more height I would have given it another go, but that was the highest point.”
