Penn State and the University of Central Florida played a college football game in Dublin, Ireland, this weekend.

Before the game, skydivers representing each school parachuted into the stadium to get the party started.

The guy representing Penn State executed his stunt perfectly. 

The guy representing UCF? Not so much, missing the stadium entirely and landing on a nearby set of railroad tracks. Oops.

Luckily, the incident, spotted by SB Nation, was captured on Instagram by a user called Cian, who was there to document the fail.


Here's what that guy meant to do; the Penn State skydiver put on a textbook landing display.

But fear not, dear reader - no one was hurt. Ireland's national railway system used its official Twitter account to give the all-clear.

Welcome to our unexpected visitor the #CrokeParkClassic parachutist who landed on the railway line behind Hill 16! Line clear now, no delays

Oh, and Penn State won the game, 26-24. But that's a minor footnote - our friend's skydiving fail wins the day, for sure.
