A brazen tombstoner tries to shock onlookers by playing dead once he hit the water.

The footage was captured by a passer-by, and shows a young man taking a run up before throwing himself off the edge of a cliff face as dozens of people look on.

He narrowly misses the rocks, and hits the water with a thud, to the shock of the onlookers.

The tombstoner then floats lifelessly, face down in the water, before shaking it off and swimming to a nearby rock.

It is not thought that the youngster was hurt during the stunt, and police have now issued a fresh warning urging people to avoid tombstoning.
