Tourist survives 365-foot plunge when bungee cord snaps

Any adventurous vacationer who's considered taking a leap of faith on a bungee jump might want to take a look at this gut-wrenching video first.

It recounts the miraculous tale of 22-year-old Erin Langworthy, an Australian tourist who fell from the Victoria Falls Bridge over Africa's Zambezi River to the crocodile-infested, rapids-strewn waters below on Dec. 31. Langworthy told Nine Network television that she blacked out briefly after the bungee cord broke and she hit the river on the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe.

The stretch of the Zambezi below Victoria Falls is so intimidating that its one-day rafting trips are touted as the world's most challenging.

"You get sucked under and then you pop up so it's very disorienting -- I didn't know which was up or down," said Langworthy, who was still attached to a trailing cord by the ankles. She said the broken cord repeatedly snagged, so she "had to swim down and yank the bungee cord out of whatever it was caught on to make it to the surface."

"Luckily we had been rafting, so I remembered some of the safety tips," she told ABC's Good Morning America on Monday.

After reaching the Zimbabwe bank of the river, Langworthy was evacuated to a hospital in South Africa with cuts, bruises, and a broken collar bone.

She's kind of hot, plus you gotta love the accent. So, overall I'm glad she made it. Guy or ugly I wouldn't care.


Side note....WHO THE FUCK thinks it's a good idea to do this kind of shit in some third world asshole of a country like Zimbabwe? Seriously? If you want to do an extreme activity do it in a 1st world country where it's regulated. At least then you have a shot of not ending up on the news.

I was thinking the same fucking thing. Of all places on the planet to do extra shit to risk you life, why do in Africa in general. If you want to risk you life just pick up a spear and go lion hunting or go down to the congo to flirt with some misunderstood unruly youths.

Meanwhile the company that runs the bungee jump maintains its plunges are safe.
Do ya? Kinda tough position to take on that argument.

I saw an episode of I Survived where a family of American dopes was on some sort of Jungle safari adventure in some savage hellhole somewhere... hilarity ensued when a hippopotamus came charging out and chomped the dickens out of two of the tourists in the group.

The American dopes were shocked to learn that the two savages who were guiding their tour didn't know whether to shit or go blind when the hippo hijinx was over. They were like, "Okay, call the proper authori-ties and have them send a Medi-E-Vac chopper and a crack trauma team! STAT!" and the guides were like, "Eek? Ook?" And like 6 hours later a pick-up truck shows up driven by a lone savage who didn't have so much as a box of Band-Aids with him.

"What? Where's the state-of-the-art medical rescue squad?!"

You ain't in Kansas anymore, Toto.
