(Newser) – Belgian photographer and skydiver Bruno Brokken may have misjudged the amount of water he planned to dump on himself in his version of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge … by just a smidge. The Independent reports that he commissioned a firefighting plane to unleash almost 400 gallons of water on him from 22 feet in the air. Not surprisingly, the water knocked him unconscious, the Daily Mirror adds. Brokken, 51, performed the stunt at an aerodome in northeast Spain and is now recovering in a hospital. Luckily, he didn't suffer any internal injuries. (A Scottish teenager attempting another risky version of the challenge was not so lucky.)
