A Dutch man was captured diving to his death from a cliff during a stunt filmed while on vacation with his family in Spain.

The video, obtained by the New York Post, shows the 31-year-old leaping off a cliff in the Malgrats Islands on Thursday afternoon. In the video, it appears the man hit a sharp rock before landing in the water.

“Oh my God!” his wife is heard saying, according to The Post.

His wife, who has not been identified, was with their son filming from a nearby boat.

According to the Post, citing local outlets, the family apparently rented the boat to record the stunt.

According to The Olive Press, local authorities and rescue teams located the man’s body, which was taken to a yacht club in Santa Ponsa. The man’s wife was also able to receive counseling after the incident, according to reports.

An autopsy determined the man suffered from a broken hip and arm and drowned after he lost consciousness, the newspaper reported.

According to the report, the man was the second tourist to die that day. Another tourist fell from a hotel balcony in Magaluf, Majorca earlier this morning. Law enforcement officials identified the tourist as a 34-year-old Briton, The Independent reported.
