    That was one of the scariest videos I've ever seen. I am terrified of heights anyway, so just watching her jump made the hair on the back of my neck stand up. But, when the rope broke, I felt like I was going to be sick. If I hadn't known the outcome, it would have been absolutely horrifying! So lucky, she is!

    Now, I hope she just gets treated for all the parasites she may have blasted into her system. :eek:

    Ohh I got questions...... how long before she bungee jumps again?

    I saw this in a CNN video. There the narrator said, "Then the unthinkable happened." No, not "unthinkable". Which is why I don't go bungee jumping. Especially in Africa.

    Neither do I. Anywhere and not just in Africa. I love how the video said that the company assures bungee jumping is safe. Yea, we all just saw how safe it was. And this woman was very small (it's not like she was pushing the weight limits) so why did the cord snapped?

    Can you imagine being one of the other jumpers dangling there in the air? I'm sure they were wondering how (and if!) their rigs were holding! :thud:
