When Harold Camping predicted the end of the world on May 21, 2011 many people didn’t take it seriously. Anthony Thompson didn’t either, but that didn’t stop him from celebrating the next day by jumping into the Kalamazoo River with his friends. A photographer from the Associated Press happen to be there to document what would be Anthony’s final leap, for just after this photo was taken, he was swept up in the current and drowned. A stirring image depicted here in the moment just before death: a leap of faith.
