INCREDIBLE! North Korean Gymnast Vaults Over Border Fence and Sprints to Freedom

On November 4, 2020, a North Korean gymnast was arrested after vaulting over a 10 foot border fence in the most militarized border on earth to make it to freedom in South Korea.

According to a report by The Korea Herald, when the North Korean was captured by the South Korean military, the officials did not believe his story. Just by appearances alone, the North Korean does not look like a professional vaulter. He is relatively short and not particularly athletic, but when the officials recreated a border fence to re-enact the event and verify the story, the North Korean vaulted over it – twice.

There are still questions as to why the sensors on the fences did not trigger an alarm, or how the gymnast made it so close to the border zone on the North Korean side without detection.

Dr. Eugene Bach is a known trouble-maker with an active imagination and sinful past. He has a PhD, but is not a real doctor, so please do not call for him during a medical emergency on an airplane when someone is having a heart attack. Eugene started working for Back to Jerusalem in the year 2000 after a backroom deal involving Chinese spies, the NRA, Swiss bankers, and a small group of Apostolic Christians that only baptize in Jesus’ name. He spends most of his time in closed countries attempting to topple governments by proclaiming the name of Jesus and not taking showers. From time-to-time he pretends to be a writer. He is not good at it, but everyone around him tries to humor him.
