Organizers for a Jagermeister sponsored pool party in Mexico found a new way to ruin a good time. The event organizers allegedly threw four buckets of liquid nitrogen into a pool that people were still swimming in, in an idiotic attempt it to generate a smoky effect.
Who know, the same liquid nitrogen scientists use to freeze dead people and also nearly stop the T-1000 in “Terminator 2″? Apparently, booze and bikinis just isn’t enough anymore.
As the warning label, or any basic Google search will tell you, mixing liquid nitrogen with other chemicals, like the chlorine in a pool, is not the best idea… In fact, it is extremely dangerous. On top of that, it’s just sort of a douchey thing to do.
The stunt hospitalized eight people and left one in a coma. The whole incident was caught on video, which you can watch here. Ouch.
If there’s a lesson to be learned, it’s that you should stay away from liquid nitrogen. That is unless you want to cryogenically freeze your brain in an attempt to live forever or have to fight off a Terminator. Then, you know, go for it.
