Wrong way! Pair’s trust fall fails spectacularly when girl topples FORWARDS into a stream
- A Moscow woman was standing by a stream with a friend to try a ‘trust fall’
- Her friend was standing behind her ready to catch her when she fell back
- However, the woman instead leaned forward and fell head first into the water
This is the hilarious moment a Russian woman’s ‘trust fall’ failed in a spectacular fashion when she plunged into a stream.
The woman, who has not been identified, was filmed standing on the edge of the water in Moscow with a man standing behind her ready to catch her.
In a trust fall, one participant tips backwards, but is saved from slamming onto the ground by their partner who catches them.

But rather than falling backwards the woman tipped forwards, much to the surprise of her friend

However, this woman appears to have been confused by the instructions.
Instead of falling backwards, she leaned forwards and tumbled face-first into the water before her partner could catch her.
The footage shows her exasperated partner dropping to his haunches with his head in his hands.
The woman, who was wearing a pristine white summer dress, remained stiff as she fell into the water, holding her arms out wide.
The person filming the incident cuts a few seconds from the footage, but the woman can be heard talking to her friend trying to figure out what went wrong.
She was not the first to fail at a ‘trust fall’, which is often used as a team-building exercise.
In one case in Birmingham, UK, Chris Swann thought he would teach his twin nephews Scott and Paul how to perform the trick.
However, after he positioned their arms crossed on their chests and told to shut their eyes, count to three and then fall, he realised he didn’t say ‘fall backwards’.
As a result the nine-year-olds fell in the wrong direction.
In America, youths created the hashtag #trustfallchallenge, where people were filmed standing in front of random strangers before falling backwards – in the hope the person reacted quickly.

Many ended up flat on their backs when the other person was too shocked to act quickly enough to catch them.
Another victim girl named Avery, from Vass, North Carolina, was filmed standing in the living room alongside her father Chris and their decorated Christmas tree.
She too fell forwards in a spectacular fashion.
