Bridge Jumping

I was hanging out with a group of people trying to think of what to do. Many of us wanted to try cliff diving, but since Florida lacks cliffs we decided to plan a trip to do some cliff jumping at a later date, and in the meantime to practice with some bridge jumping. We chose a bridge that had a nice gradual arc so everyone could move to greater heights at their own pace. Once we got to the bridge I looked down at some of it's lower points of the bridge and noticed that the water was too shallow to do a safe jump and it looked like the ocean floor wasn't clear. I kept saying that no one should jump at the lower points and that it just wasn't safe. I continued to walk up to the peak of the bridge, and one of the more experienced divers went first from the high point and did a quick freedive to gauge the depth and make sure there weren't any obstructions in the water - all was clear. I was the third person to jump from the peak and it was such an amazing rush. Such a pure and beautiful feeling. My heart was still racing as I began to relax in the water and I felt as though I was high from the endorphin rush. I looked back towards the shore and noticed someone positioning themself to jump where the bridge was lower, and I was immediately concerned and began to swim over quickly. The person who jumped first was fine, they hit the ground with a bit of force, but nothing serious. Two more people were standing on the edge waiting for the okay from the first person, and I still did not think it safe to jump there so was still swimming towards them. The two jumped off one after the other, and screams of pain rang through the air from both. I got to them a minute or so later and one landed on a piece of re-bar and it was sticking through their foot so they couldn't move. The other, who was a teenage daughter of one of the divers hit a large concrete block under the water and was banged up and in shock but otherwise okay. The diver who landed on the rebar was screaming in pain and kept flailing about. Finally one of the other divers made it over to us and helped me to immobilize him, and I went underwater and carefully lifted his foot up and off the rebar. I took the bandanna from my hair and wrapped it around the wound and tied it in place with the string from the waistband of his shorts and looped the string around his calf to help keep his foot from moving and we carried him to the shore as he was hysterical and went into shock from the experience. Someone else who was on the bridge ran down and swam out to help the daughter out of the water. The dream fast forwarded to being on the shore trying to get someone to move their car down to us to take the two to the hospital but almost everyone was in a frantic state. The dream again fast forwarded to the hospital and everyone else was calm again and the two injured were resting, but now that the high stress of the situation was gone I was exhausted and an emotional mess.
Two things really stood out in the dream: how beautiful and freeing it was to make the jump and entirely let go of all concerns and responsibilities. And how refreshing it was to hit the water and be suspended weightless for a moment. The other feeling that stood out was how absolutely frustrating it was to feel like no one was listening to anything I said even when trying to help them. The contrast between the two feelings only magnified the experience of each.
