    she was lucky it snapped after it let out so the resistance at the end slowed her down then it snapped, so she didn't fall from the entire height.
    Apparently those waters are crocidile infested.
    She's lucky she only ended up with a broken collarbone, which I've had and isn't fun

    I've always wanted to bungee jump but now not so much. :( 

    Hope she survived. If she did she'd still have a difficult time swimming with her feet tied together.

    ***EDIT***

    So she did survive. Good to hear. She wants to go again. More power to her. I just hope she makes them double check the equipment the next time around.

    The reason I will never bungee jump is the same reason why I will never take up sky diving. I'm never comfortable when I'm not in the middle of a large piece of solid ground.

    Wow! Lucky her to have survived! Reminds me of this old Faces of Death video where the college kids are drinking on top of a building and one decides to bungee jump. Unfortunately they miscalculated the distance and had too much line. The guy hit the ground like a rock and you could see the loose slack all the way up! Poor bastard!

    I'll never bungee jump either! I've always been afraid of something like that happening.

    Exactly. It's much more fun indoors.

    Also, why is the Futurama "Robot Hell" song playing in my head right now?

    "OMG. We need to do something!" What the hell were they waiting around and standing there for still filming? Frikking morons waited for those crocks to appear?

    Saw this on the news last night. The injuries of this jump is on a WTF scale. They are so painful just to look at. #Ouch

    Wouldn't jump if you asked me.......unless the price is right

    Same here, Bungee jumping is teasing death, and to be honest, teasing it is NOT something I wanna do.
    Though if there's an exclusive Unicron waiting at the bottom I might give it a shot...

    That's terrible! :lol 


    But yeah, I will never bungee jump. I'm way too scared of heights to even consider it. *shudder*

    No one even attempted to go after her, and there was a dude just walking back & forth.
    Maybe she was someone's wife, and it was all planned.

    Good riddance honey!

    LOL, someone's been watching too many murder mysteries. And yeah, it was pretty terrible, but what could they really do from that height? In the interview, she says she was pulled from the water, so someone did go after her.
