This is the painful moment a woman backflipped off the edge of a waterfall and broke multiple bones after slamming into the shallow plunge pool.

Footage shows the 21-year-old woman leaping off the rocky top of Traverse Falls near Placerville and performing a 360-degree turn in mid-air before disappearing from view. 

The daredevil was seriously injured at the moment she hit the bottom and had to be airlifted to Sutter Roseville Medical Center for treatment.

The video was filmed last June but the California Highway Patrol released it this week to warn people not to attempt similar exploits as temperatures rise. 

Cops said the woman suffered ‘multiple broken bones’ but did not add any additional detail. 

The Highway Patrol also released more recent footage, filmed on Friday, of multiple authorities rescuing a woman after she fell into south Yuba River near Highway 49. 

Firefighters used a rescue rope system to haul the woman to safety before a helicopter took her to hospital. Her condition is unknown. 

Authorities responded to yet another water-related accident a day later, when a climber fell 20 feet near the south Yuba River and suffered head injuries.

The thrill-seeker was pulled off a craggy cliff and taken to hospital, reported SF Gate. 

The daredevil was seriously injured at the moment she hit the bottom and had to be airlifted to Sutter Roseville Medical Center for treatment. She is seen here in mid-flight
