Louisiana man who was ‘bored in traffic’ is arrested after leaping 100ft into alligator-infested river

A man from Louisiana who claims to have been bored while sitting in traffic jumped into the alligator-infested Atchafalaya River sparking an hours-long search and rescue effort.

Jimmy Ivan Jennings, 26, was fully clothed as he jumped into the river from the span which is part of interstate 10.

He now realizes how lucky he is to be alive.

‘I started going under and almost drowned a few times. I really and truly thought it was the end of my time. I asked God for forgiveness. I forgave everyone in my life. It was hectic,’ he told the Daily News.
