Man jumps from Royal Caribbean ship, gets banned for life

Naydev's friend said

Nick Naydev, 27, was traveling on the Symphony of the Seas with a group of friends when he chose to make the leap while the ship was docked in the Bahamas.

Naydev later told Fox 13 he regretted the decision and hoped no one else would attempt a similar jump, which he estimated was about 100 feet.

He told King5: 'I never thought it was going to go this far. I jumped from the 11th floor and the height must have been well over 100ft. "When I woke up I just made a decision to jump", he responded to a user on Instagram. "I didn't really think it through".

In the Instagram comments, Naydev said that he was still drunk from the night before at the time of the jump.

'It was right in the morning, I woke up. "So reckless! You could have died!" another said. "Local police in Nassau, Bahamas were called in to pick us up from the ship, but fortunately the police thought the whole situation was amusing and did not proceed to file any legal actions".

What Naydev didn't reveal was that his 10-second stunt got him booted from that Royal Caribbean cruise - and all others in the future. He says he could "barely walk" for three days and had trouble sleeping as a result of neck, back and tailbone pain, but didn't report any serious injuries.

'I hope I don't inspire anybody to do this because it is very risky. I did not think this through before I jumped.

He said he didn't know the water he jumped in to is usually shark infested.

Police arrested Geoffrey Cassidy and charged him with lewd and lascivious behavior with a victim younger than 16 years old. Beckham spent five seasons in the National Football League as a cornerback for the Tennessee Titans and Detroit Lions.

However Naydev explained that he was booted off the ship by security officials. "'So, the sharks are just out there just feeding on the food".

The stunt earned him and his friends a lifetime ban from the cruise liner. A plane ticket from Nassau to Miami cost him about $200, he added. Naydev identified his friend, Konstantin Kryachun, as the cameraman.

He also revealed that they weren't thinking about the cruise company's response, but were focused on getting a good video.

The video has since gone viral, racking up thousands of views.

Mr Naydev later posted the video to his social media account.

Naydev and his friends were immediately booted from the cruise and had to find their own way home, according to USA Today.
