While trying to evaporate water in freezing temperatures, a teenager slipped over on ice.
A recent viral trend has seen people all over the Internet throwing boiling water into the freezing air to see how quickly it can evaporate.
Eager to join in on the trend, Zachary Franco, 14, decided to boil a pot of water and head out into the snow of Rome, New York.
After successfully throwing the water and seeing it miraculously evaporate in front of his eyes, Zachary hilariously slipped and fell on his backside outside in the street.
Zachary said: “I was really surprised when the water actually evaporated.
“When I fell it kind of knocked the wind out of me and I thought it was funny afterward.”
