Tom Brady tempts fate with waterfall jump in Costa Rica
Four-time-Superbowl-winning quarterback Tom Brady took to the air last week at what appears to be Montezuma Falls near Cóbano.
A voice on the video asked, “Are you going to jump, Tom?” before Brady took a breath and then the plunge.
“Never doing that again!” Brady posted on March 28. The video went viral with over 10.5 million views at this writing.
Brady and his Brazilian supermodel wife, Giselle Bündchen, own a property in Santa Teresa on the Nicoya Peninsula, a star-studded town that has become a hotspot for Hollywood celebrities.
The Patriots’ sports medicine doctor probably cringed when he saw Superbowl MVP jump off the waterfall, but Brady made it out unscathed.
The same couldn’t be said for a young man at the same falls Wednesday. The Costa Rican Red Cross reported that he jumped into the pool and disappeared for more than an hour before the body was recovered.

The Red Cross announced that three people have drowned during Semana Santa so far, brining the total death toll up to 25. The unusually high number of fatalities this year as already exceeded the 24 who lost their lives during Holy Week in 2014.
