    Man Jumps Off 50 Foot Bridge To Retrieve $20 Bill

    Man plummets 50 feet to grab missing $20

    PALMETTO, Fla. - Mark Giorgio figured a 50-foot fall was worth $20. Giorgio, 47, was counting his money Monday while walking across the U.S. 41 bridge over the Manatee River when a $20 bill blew out of his hand and flew over the rail.

    He followed. And plummeted 50 feet into the river.

    Then he swam about 100 yards to fish the bill from the water.

    "I got my money back, hell yeah," Giorgio told the Sarasota Herald-Tribune. "Twenty bucks is a lot of money when you're broke."

    He was fished from the water by a passing Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officer. Giorgio, who said he was already suffering from a broken collarbone, refused treatment for cuts and scrapes he suffered in the fall.

    I love it. Got nothin to do with bein cheap, dood just didnt want to lose his cash. If he had say, fished it out of an open sewer, I might be inclined to rethink it. But how do you know he wasn't a base jumper, and that a fifty foot jump was an acceptable risk?
