Man jumps off Fort Pierce bridge for job

FORT PIERCE, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a Fort Pierce man had
himself videotaped jumping off a causeway bridge to get a little
more attention for his resume.

A police spokeswoman says 25-year-old Christopher Warren Grima
is applying for a six-month job paying $105,000 on the Great
Barrier Reef in Australia. She says Wednesday's stunt was supposed
to make his application shocking so that his prospective employers
would give him a closer look.

Grima told Scripps Treasure Coast Newspapers that he tried to
leave quickly, but the police arrived before he could get out of
the water. Grima says he wasn't sure about the legality of the
jump, which he guessed was at least 40 feet, but he knew he wasn't
supposed to do it.

Grima received a court summons for breach of peace and
disorderly conduct.
