The guy diving off of the tower Bungee-style, and doing a face plant in the mud isn't really an unlucky account. He's a part of a tribe, (I can't, for the life of me, remember the name of the tribe, but I believe they originate on some pacific island), and their test of manhood is to climb to the top of these massive and rickety towers with a rope tied to one leg and dive off. If your face hits the mud you pass. If you miss, you do not. And if you die.... well, in that case you absolutely fail. Seeing how he managed to achieve his face plant, I'd say that was probably one of the happier days in that guy's life.
I remember watching a show about those people on Nat Geo a few years ago.
S&F for the levity though
Here's a link to a clip of the real ritual...
