Australian Girl Survives Bungee Cord Break [VIDEO]

Erin Langworthy, and Australian girl, survived a horrifying fall after her bungee cord snapped. She was jumping off Africa’s Victoria Falls Bridge which is about 364 ft. in the air. When her bungee cord snapped, she plunged into the river below. To make her brush with death even scarier, the river she fell into was infested with crocodiles. According to Reuters,

Video footage showed the moment towards the end of the fall that the cord snapped and hurled her into the river.

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.

“Yes, I think it’s definitely a miracle that I survived,” she said.

Langworthy was treated at a nearby clinic before being evacuated to South Africa.

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

Wow. Below are two videos, the first from Reuters and the second from theChive. The second video is the full video and may have some NSFW language.
