Shiloh Shahan had been living in Hawaii for a year and a half and was getting ready to move back to California. Before leaving, a friend took him to see Wailua Falls on Kauai.
It’s one of the tallest waterfalls in Hawaii and of course it’s illegal to jump from it. But Shahan felt he had to do it. The impact with the water knocked him unconscious. He didn’t die thanks to a group of tourists that rescued him after seeing him floating.
“I remember coming to, like getting out of the water and I didn’t remember my name where I was, I was completely like I mean reborn in a way. I didn’t have any recollection of who I was where I was at and then they told me I jumped off and I said ‘I did that, cool’,” Shahan told after being rescued.
He then published the video himself. “I titled the video ‘leap of faith,’ what’s going through my mind is alright, this is it I’m ready, like when I say I’m ready, I’m talking to like a higher power if there’s one,” Shahan explained.
