WATCH: New Brunswick man has to jump through tiny gap left by snowfall to exit home


A New Brunswick family woke up to quite the jam Tuesday morning after Atlantic Canada was hit by back-to-back snow storms.

Tracy MacLeod posted a video of her husband Daniel attempting to exit their home through the front door, except it was barricaded by a pile of snow nearly as tall as their doorway.

Standing on a chair, Daniel peers through a gap a foot and a half high and hurls himself through the hole head first.

Amazingly, barely any snow falls into the house as he somersaults gracefully into a landing.

WATCH: Another video shows MacLeod’s daughter attempting, but failing, at jumping over the snow pile.

In a subsequent video, MacLeod’s daughter Cassidy is seen attempting the same manoeuvre, only to belly flop right on top of the snow pile, toppling it over into their house.

The girl’s failed attempt is followed by their dog, which wiggles itself out through the snow pile, leaving more of a mess behind.

Last year, another maritime snowstorm left a Newfoundland family in a similar predicament. The man’s attempt at leaving his home eventually went viral.

WATCH: “Jumpin’ Jesus!” A Newfoundland man climbs over a massive snow drift outside his front door.
