    Default Teens Leaping For Thrills In 'Garage Jumping' Trend

    Teens Leaping For Thrills In 'Garage Jumping' Trend

    POSTED: 2:52 pm EST February 28, 2005
    UPDATED: 11:02 am EST March 1, 2005

    ORLANDO, Fla. -- Teenagers in Orlando, Fla., are leaping between 80-foot high public parking garages in a new trend called "garage jumping," according to a Local 6 News investigation.





    Local 6 News reported that the thrill seekers are vaulting themselves between garages in downtown Orlando.

    Tim Bargfrede told Local 6 News that he was following friends when he attempted to garage jump and did not make it to the other side. Bargfrede fell six stories and was knocked unconscious on impact.

    "I just didn't make it," Bargfrede said.

    Bargfrede survived the 80-foot fall but was injured.

    "The first time I came to the garage after my son's accident, I looked over and I just about broke out in tears," the boy's father Tim Bargfrede said. "I can't believe he actually survived. He looked like he was near death."


    "He (Bargfrede) is not he first person, he is not the second person, there have been four or five other individuals before him that did this," family's attorney Vincent D'Assaro said.

    The city of Orlando owns one of the downtown parking lots next to a private parking garage owned by Orlando Tower LP, according to Local 6 News.

    Orlando Parking Garage Director Samuel Vennero admitted he was aware of at least one other incident where a garage jumper didn't make it to the other side.

    "I don't think we recognized it before as a danger," Vennero said.

    There are no safety fences in place on the parking garage.



    D'Assaro is filing a lawsuit against the city of Orlando and the private garage owner for making little effort to correct a potential deadly risk.

    "There was a very, very short length of fence that was completely ineffective in preventing this from happening," D'Assaro said.

    Orlando Tower LP, the private parking lot owner, refused to comment about their responsibility, according to the report.

    Since Bargfrede fell, the City of Orlando erected a partial fence but there's still room for someone to take a dangerous dive.

    The family says that's not good enough and that both garages need to take responsibility before a garage jumper loses his life.

    - weed out the idiots, I guess. I think when the guy's dad said "I can't believe he actually survived", he should have been saying "I can't believe he's so stupid". And leave the city and the garage owners alone. It's not their fault your kids are imbeciles.

    So these idiots are leaping across buildings and its the garage owners fault that some dumbass fell? I hate it when people blame everyone else but themselves (or in this case, their idiotic kids). I'm sure a blood sucking ambulance chaser is lurking somewhere in the shadows...

    I can understand why the family of the kid is upset, but I hope they don't win the lawsuit. A teenage kid is old enough to know when not to do something like that. What a dumbass, and the parents should be pissed at their kid, not the city.

    So you never played "Chicken" with the Beach Train in that tunnel in the Santa Cruz mountains? I mean, I didn't but when I was fourteen I could have been talked into it.

    Still, the lawsuit is uncalled for. Nobody can aticipate stupidity.

    Only problem with this form of "natural selection" (maybe not in this particular episode of misadventure, but in many others) is that the fittest bystanders end up victims while the ones that need to cease to exist usually continue on, albeit usually in a maimed and/or vegetative state.
