Devon and Cornwall police have issued a warning for people to take care when they leave pubs.
They've released these CCTV images of a man climbing over safety railings and falling 20 feet on to the pavement below in Newquay.
The incident happened in the early hours at the Chy bar in Newquay.
A 23-year old local man escaped serious injury. He didn't want to be identified, but has agreed for the footage to be shown to try and discourage others from trying to do something similar.
The video below shows how far the man fell:
Devon and Cornwall Police say the man was extremely lucky to only suffer a fractured wrist:
The bar overlooks Newquay's Towan beach. It's owned by a local family who said they were shocked by the incident.
The warning comes just days after thousands of under 18s have arrived in Newquay to celebrate the end of their exams.
So far a policy to clamp down on rowdyism and under age drinking has worked.
The man in the CCTV footage is just grateful his foolish behaviour didn't cost him his life.
