A group of young people outside Chicoutimi, Que., had some high-flying fun by using a human slingshot this past week. 

Launching themselves off a huge slip and slide ramp, helmet-attached mini cameras in tow, they fly swiftly into the air before splashing into the lake. The group posted their antics in a YouTube video, which had been viewed more than 150,000 times by Tuesday morning.

Looks like they'll have some interesting summer stories to tell, but it's not a stunt that young people are urged to copy.
