In the video below, a diver performs an unbelievable leap, all while on a moving cruise liner!

Hold on to your seats, folks — this one is a doozy.

Cesilie Carlton, 35, was recently filmed performing this awe-inducing dive while on the Harmony of the Seas cruise ship.

Cesilie is an American high-diver who became a gold medalist at the 2013 World Aquatics Championships.

In the video, she performs a dive from a whopping 55-foot height. It’s no wonder that the video has received more than 300,000 views and counting since being posted on Instagram!

Carlton works as a performer in the ship’s AquaTheater, where she regularly performs dives like these. However, they are not without their risks.

If it’s unusually rough weather and we lose too much water, we postpone shows, a safety precaution for our divers who are jumping, like Cesilie, from as high as 55 feet,” said her fellow cast member, Sydney Jones.
