This is the exact reason, why i hate things like that. Yes it may be safe, but IF it goes wrong, it can end very very bad.

#1 Yes, like flying or driving the car.
This is why I never leave the house and my walls and corners are all padded.

#2 yes we do drive cars or fly but most of the time thats part of life. Jumping from a bridge tied to a rope (what seems to be a very old tied together rope) is not part of daily life. I dont think she will bungee jump again.

The rope they were using was obviously worn off. Not noticing that is asking for things that will occur to happen.

What you need to rope for anyway, she survived the fall? Bet she got the thrill of her life that she has been looking for her entire life.

#5 Without the rope she would be dead. The rope reduced her fall impact but it snapping caused her heavy injuries.

#8-its a third world country, i think #7 comment wasnt racisist, but in poorer countries safety isnt noumber one priority. And my opinion is the same, why in Zimbabwe? Go and do adrenaline stuff in richer countries and the % of accident is smaller. Just sayin and its a fact.

Wow! Not only did she have her bungee cord snap, but she fell into crocodile infested water.
That's a story to drink out on for many years to come.

This is a reason for why i would never do anything like this.You never know what could happen and no matter how safe someone " claims " to be,there's always that risk something bad might happen.
She is a very lucky woman.And crocodile infected waters? wow extremely lucky.

Is not wise to engaged our life to all kind of thriller like that! or use carnaval machine or gun, if not necessarily into your life and others. Comforts and enjoyment can occured to someone you loved. its better to be played your soul to save your friend's death. cause one lost you died suicide, but if one lost one saved or two saved or two died but they had sense.

I like the part 0:40 when the girl says: "OMG who's gonna do something".
