Last updated 11:34 27/01/2014

Film-maker Lance McKirdy filmed this dive featuring the Cromwell and Lowburn bridges in the Southern Lakes District.

The diver is Simone Schreck.

The Cromwell Bridge was built in 1864 and the Lowburn in 1938. The bridges were submerged in the early 1990s after the Clutha River was flooded for a hydro electric dam development.
