    I hope that there is always someone with CPR/First Aid training at the water level who can help in case of an emergency like this, otherwise, the person is screwed if the cord breaks, because everyone is much too far away to be any help whatsoever in a rescue attempt. This company should be closed and sued for the ordeal she had to go through. Yes, I think this is a dangerous, stupid, thrill-seeking sport, but it’s the company’s job to ensure every possible safety measure is in place, just in case. Scary.

    Just to correct your headline, Andy — I believe that this is, more accurately, the nightmare of every person who has REFUSED to go bungee jumping. :-)

    “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.
    This is the first time I am hearing of an incident. The probability of an incident is one in 500,000 jumps,” Information Minister Given Lubinda was quoted as saying”
    It doesn’t sound something random and should not be associated with “probability”.
    It means that bungee cord was ten years old and was not routinely checked for any wear and tear.

    My argument against bungee jumping:

    Why tempt fate?

    There are so many other amazing things to do in this world. Adrenaline isn’t what gives me a sense of purpose in my life.
