Acapulco cliff divers risk their lives to drive tourism

At Mexico’s beach resort of Acapulco, a group of professional cliff divers eagerly put their lives at risk on a daily basis, performing shows for the public and attracting tons of tourists in the process.
The Acapulco cliff divers have risked their lives daily for decades. Alejandro Rivera, now 28-year-old, is one of the divers at the tourist attraction. He dropped out of school at the age of eleven and never considered learning a trade. In his family, becoming a cliff diver is the only occupation.
