Frustrated with being stuck in traffic following a 10-vehicle pile-up, 26-year-old Jim Ivan Jennings decided to jump into the Atchafalaya River, which has a powerful riptide and is home to thousands of alligators — and it was all captured on video.

“It was the stupidest idea,” he recalled.

His friend Khory Vaughn (of questionable dependability) recorded the moment and shared the 13-second clip on Facebook with a caption: “Wtf did I just witness?”

After Jennings struggled to tread water for approximately three hours, the current finally weakened enough for him to make it to shore.

Medical staff and agents from the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries combed the surrounding area looking for him.

Jennings was given citations for criminal trespassing and criminal mischief, according to the St. Martin’s Parish Sheriff’s Office.
