Mother faces backlash after video of daughter missing pool goes viral

A Peoria mother is getting a lot of backlash after she posted a video of her daughter failing to jump into a swimming pool on YouTube.

She says she posted it partly as a warning, and partly as a campaign to raise money for her daughter's medical bill. 

The video has gone viral all over the world.

We're told it was a dare that made valley teen, Nicole Easton, attempt to jump off a roof and into a pool.

Unfortunately, Easton missed the pool and hit the concrete.

The original video posted by Easton's mom, Carrie Yunker, has been pulled from YouTube, but there are several other posts now.

Critics are blasting Yunker, for asking the public to pay for her daughter's failed stunt.

Easton broke both her heels during the jump and is recovering.
