M/S of Willard Blain standing in a street, holding a parachute. He says he is about to approach the new George Washington Bridge and that others have attempted to jump off the bridge but have failed in death.

He gets into a taxi, asking the driver to take him to the middle of George Washington Bridge, "and make it snappy!"
L/S from the bridge shows Blain jumping off as a policeman runs up to try to stop him. Blain lands in the Hudson River below and swims towards a boat. C/U of Blain after the event: he says he counted seven seconds on the way down and hit with a terrific wallop!
