Insane guy floats down flooded Auckland Dam in tyre tube

This guy is one insane and lucky dude.

During the floods that occurred in the upper North Island region over the weekend, the Nihotupu Dam out in West Auckland was also pretty heavily flooded and one crazy lad decided it would be a "fun" idea to abseil down the walls of the dam and jump in his tyre tube and float down.

While it did make for a viral Facebook video, this guy is pretty dumb considering how he easily could have drowned.

Not a smart idea, guys.
