A London lifeboat crew rescued a teenage boy who jumped into the River Thames for a viral video on August 31. The 16-year-old had almost slipped under the waterline after jumping into the south side of the river at County Hall, Westminister, when the crew from the Tower RNLI lifeboat station arrived.‘We learned afterwards that his mates had dared him to jump from Westminster Bridge and they would film it to put online,’ said David Norman, Tower RNLI helmsman in a statement. ‘It happens – but time and time again people just do not realise what the conditions of the River Thames can be like. It can be very cold – granted, not so much at this time of year – but the currents can be vicious.’ Credit: YouTube/RNLI
