This video shows 22-year-old Australian tourist Erin Langworthy bungee jumping from the Victoria Falls Bridge, 111m over the Zambesi River. It’s just a normal tourist video… until the cord breaks and she falls into the crocodile-infested waters.
Miraculously, she survived after hurting herself quite badly and swimming out of the river rapids with her legs still tied. Fun!
Talking to Channel 9 news, the Erin said that it was quite rough:
It went black straight away and I felt like I’d been slapped all over. The water was going quite quickly and then I started to hear the roaring. It’s like being in waves, you get sucked under and then you pop up so it’s very disorienting, I didn’t know which was up or down.
Not scary enough? It gets worse:
It was quite scary because a couple of times the rope actually got caught on some rocks or debris. I actually had to swim down and yank the bungee cord out of whatever it was caught on to make it to the surface.
