    If a PT jumps off a bridge into water for fun. What E Code would you use? This was not an accident and was not intentially trying to cause injury. Any ideas?

    it is an accident, he intentionally jumped but accidentally caused harm, chose an E code for accident due to jumping and there is another one for while swimming or diving or something like that. My book is with my luggage and I cannot access it at this moment.
