The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge may be raking in millions ($79.7 million at last count) for a worthy cause, but there have been some injuries and embarrassments along the way. It turns out one of those embarrassments happened last night in the East River.
According to The Post, "Two dimwitted daredevils were taunted by friends to jump into the East River as part of the ALS ice bucket challenge Monday night—even though one couldn’t swim." The men, in their 20s, jumped in from Long Island City at around 8 p.m. and the paper reports that one of them "swam to safety and the other needed to be saved by a good Samaritan who dove into the water and held onto the desperate diver until NYPD Emergency Service Unit cops arrived." Luckily, they did not suffer any serious injuries.
