Woman Survives 364-feet Bungee Cord Accident [Video]

There’s certain risky things I will do: eat oysters in the wrong month, fly with the blue angels, drive down Youree or Airline during rush hour. Then there are somethings I wouldn’t do bungee cord jumping is one of them.

Watch a video of a lady jumping, family cheering her on … the freak out after the cord snaps.

She’s ok though.

Langworthy had to dive under the water to unravel the rope bound around her feet as she entered the rapids.

“I actually had to swim down and yank the bungee cord out of whatever it was caught on to make it to the surface,” she said.

After unbinding her feet she managed to swim to the river bank on the Zimbabwe side to await assistance.

What happened?

A Zambian minister sought to reassure tourists about bungee safety but said the issue would be discussed with the operator.

“The bungee has proven to be a very viable operation considering that more than 50,000 tourists jump on it every year. It has been in operation for 10 years.

Whole story.

10 years … 50,000 jumps … 500,000 jumps. I wonder what the shelf life is on a bungee cord and how often it was replaced.
