Did Rodney Dangerfield do his own dive in Back to School?

The Triple Lundy

Did Rodney do it or at least parts of it? Wikipedia claims he was a trick diver in his younger days.

Pause the clip at 51 seconds. Is that him?

I'm assuming the sections where the diver lands on the different boards is clever editing? No one could do that? Could they?

Quote:
At the age of 15, he began to write for standup comedians, and began to perform at the age of 20 under the name Jack Roy. He struggled financially for nine years, at one point performing as a singing waiter until he was fired, and also working as a performing acrobatic diver before giving up show business to take a job selling aluminum siding to support his wife and family.
