A prank at a Denver Bass Pro Shops is making waves on social media, after a teenager turned a giant fish tank at the sporting goods store into his own personal dunk tank.
According to The Denver Post, a teenager went for a swim at a Bass Pro Shops in Stapleton, Colorado, and the Denver Police Department is currently investigating the incident.
“Yes, a juvenile thought it was a good idea to jump into the tank,” said Officer Marika Putnam of the Denver Police Department.
The boy jumped from a bridge down into the fish tank, which sits right in the middle of the store. An employee reportedly saw another teenager filming the stunt and stated the suspect “cracked his skull on the rocks.” The boy was not taken to the hospital for his injury, but hopefully it knocked some sense into him.
Police have stated if there is any damage to the tank or the fish, the boy could potentially face legal charges.
So this got us thinking, who would actually do something like this? And a quick YouTube search would reveal this is apparently a pretty popular “prank” to pull.
Below are a few videos that show others who thought it was a good idea to cannonball into these giant fish tanks:
At least this guy had a life vest on, right? Safety first!
All is fun and games, until the baby gets splashed by the water overflowing out of the tank.
