A girl's "trust fall" video has become an Internet hit. It shows the girl, for unknown reason, falling forward, away from her companion who should catch her and crashing face-first to the floor. The girl appears to have misunderstood the instructions.
Normally in a trust fall, you close your eyes and fall backwards having faith that the person standing behind you will catch you and prevent you taking a potentially disastrous fall.
An adult male's voice gives instructions for the exercise.
This girl closes her eyes with her friend standing behind ready to catch her when she falls back. But it is uncertain why she chooses to fall forward instead of backward. She crashes to the floor. According to the Daily Mail, she did not hurt herself in the fall
Her friend giggles nervously and appears confused by her friend's decision to fall the wrong way.
The girl appears to have misunderstood the instructions. It appears she thought that her friend was supposed to hold her from behind and stop her from falling forward.
Whatever the reason, it is likely that this is her first time of playing the "trust fall."
The Daily Mail reports that the video went viral after it was shown on NBC's "The Today Show."
The video, posted to YouTube on January 10 by Karol Artysta, has received over 100,000 views
