Free Fall

This Bridge(kean Bridge) standing over the river Surma, was built when the Indian subcontinent was under the British Empire. It's a must see tourist attraction of Sylhet,Bangladesh. It was a regular afternoon and all on a sudden a man climbed to the top of the bridge and made this jump. I don't know why he did this. Later on few locals informed me that it was a regular sport for them but for me & the tourists it was unexpected. I saw this man reach the bank of the river safely after the jump.
