This is a video from Novokuznetsk, Russia of a bungee jumper who leaps from a bridge prior to actually having the bungee cord attached to his harness. That is uh, that is one thing I would definitely double check before bungee jumping. Heck, even a single check would have helped here.
“I organize jumps in our city. We started preparing to jump one of the participants, we wanted to attach a rope to him, but he jumped with an empty ring. Fortunately, snow and grass softened the fall and he lived.”
Well thank God he didn’t land on his head. Also, I feel like this is all way too amateur an operation to be legal. I mean shouldn’t you have to be accredited by the city of Orlando or something to prove you can responsibly operate a bungee experience?
