New Delhi:

A TikTok user recently had a narrow escape with death while he was trying to make a TikTok video. Jason Clark, who has over 4 lakh followers on the video sharing app, thought that it would be a good idea to swim in icy water in Utah and record a video, little did he know that it would end like this. While sharing the video, Jason wrote, ''I have never been this close to dying. I didn't think my eyeballs would freeze so quick. The surface of the water where the hole was didn't look any different than the bottom of the ice. When I flipped around and felt solid ice I thought I was at the hole."

He added, "When I wasn't that's when I decided to head back and follow the dust I kicked up. The dust I kicked up had drifted and led me further away. I then tried to break the ice with my back, you can see in the video. I don't know what made me turn around one last time. I was so short on breath I couldn't really see anymore. I had accepted that was it and I wasn't going to make it. I swung my hand at what I thought was just a lighter spot of ice and my hand came through. I then got a ton of energy to stand up. It took 2-3 breaths to regain my vision after resurfacing. Aftermath is in the other video. When there are scary moments I joke a lot.''

I have never been this close to dying. I didn’t think my eyeballs would freeze so quick. The surface of the water where the hole was didn’t look any different than the bottom of the ice. When I flipped around and felt solid ice I thought I was at the hole. When I wasn’t that’s when I decided to head back and follow the dust I kicked up. The dust I kicked up had drifted and led me further away. I then tried to break the ice with my back, you can see in the video. I don’t know what made me turn around one last time. I was so short on breath I couldn’t really see anymore. I had accepted that was it and I wasn’t going to make it. I swung my hand at what I though was just a lighter spot of ice and my hand came through. I then got a ton of energy to stand up. It took 2-3 breaths to regain my vision after resurfacing. Aftermath is in the other video. 📷: @abbytodolist was filming. When there are scary moments I joke a lot. She genuinely thought it was another one of my jokes and didn’t recognize the severity of the situation.

Jason Clark's video has collected a whopping 21 million views on TikTok, and another 1.6 lakh on Instagram. "This video gave me so much anxiety," wrote one person in the comments section. "This is NUTS," said another.

The TikTok user went back into the lake for another attempt. He captioned the video as, ''Second attempt went a little better You have to try it twice! Added a little more safety. The exit hole is almost comically big.''
