Halocho # 458 - Water: Jump or detour?

If one needs to cross a narrow body of water on Shabbat, and one has the choice of jumping over it or walking around it, one should rather jump over it, since it means less walking.

One may not walk through it, lest one squeeze out those clothes that got wet.

On Shabbat one may not walk anywhere where there's a risk of slipping and falling into water.
