    A daredevil teen has apologized after he was filmed jumping off an iconic London bridge into the Thames River and had to be rescued by emergency services, NBC News reported.

    The video shows 17-year-old Shah Faisal Shinwari, who goes by "Carnage," leaping off Tower Bridge and into the fast-moving waters. He is then seen lying on a dock, spitting up and receiving first aid.

    The teen expressed regret over the stunt on Twitter.

    The stunt was swiftly condemned by London police and the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI).

    "We are extremely disappointed that this young man chose to risk his life in this way. He was very lucky that the outcome wasn't more serious," RNLI spokesman Tony Wafer told NBC News. "We are glad that this young man regrets his actions, however we would strongly discourage anyone from doing anything like this."

    For his stunt-gone-wrong, Shinwari promised to donate any money earned from ads on the video to the RNLI.
