This video is getting lot of play on the news and tubes. On this last New Year's Eve, the bungee cord snaps as a young Aussie takes the 111 meter drop off the Victoria Falls bridge. The cord is still tied around her ankles as she is swept over the rapids. She has to swim underwater to free the cord so she can get to shore. Did I mention the Zambezi is full of crocodiles? Big ones. She survives with bruises and cuts. Un-friggin-believable.
The jump went better for me when I took the same leap of faith from the same bridge in September 1995:
Looking at this video now, that cord does look a little frayed.
They probably should have changed it in the last 17 years.
