We've all seen on the news lately about how thousands of college students have stormed the beaches on the Gulf Coast for days of drinking and partying. It's a rite of passage.

Poor decisions go hand-in-hand with drinking, and Haylee Hoefgen found that out first hand when she decided to climb a flag pole March 10 in South Padre Island, TX.

As Haylee reaches the top of a pole that frat bros had been encouraging people to climb all day, her weight starts to shift the balance of the pole which sends her falling to the beach below.

Luckily Haylee only suffered several bruises and grazes from her fall because she landed on sand.
