    jump in a place?

    Hello,

    I'm curious if it's possible to say something like that:
    She jumped into a place where there was little water and she broke her leg. (she jumped, dived and the level of water was too low)

    Can I say jump into a place? Or maybe there is another word which is more accurate?

    Thanks in advance,
    regards

    Re: jump in a place?

    "Place" sounds very strange there. Presumably she was diving into a pool, lake, sea, ocean, swimming pool or something else containing deep water, or at least she thought it was deep water. I would specify what she was jumping into.

    She jumped into the sea but it was shallower than she realised and she broke her leg.

    Note that if she dived, it's unlikely that she would have broken her leg. If you dive in, it means you went in headfirst. If you did that into very shallow water, you would break your neck or at least fracture your skull.

    I see. So if it wasn't the sea but a waterfall I could say:
    She jumped into the water but it was too shallow.
