'Apparently, she was not fully secured when she jumped, ' Mayor Esther Merino told AFP about the accident Monday evening.

Their bungee jumps were organised by a company specialising in adventure sports.

Police chief, Joaquín González said that he didn't know bungee jumping was carried out at this spot, according to El Diario Montanes.

The girl plummeted 131 feet, landing on a dry river bed. Officials say she was not fully secured. (File photo, picture does not show girl who died)'It is extremely risky, ' he said.

Despite battling to save her life, she was pronounced dead at the scene.

An investigation into the girl's death has now been launched and psychologists have reportedly been called in to treat her distraught friends who witnessed the tragedy.

The event follows the tragic death of Kleyo de Abreu who passed away last month after crashing into a bridge as she bungee-jumped in front of her aunt in Spain

The death follows the tragic death Kleyo de Abreu, 23, from London, who was killed instantly after plunging off a modern bridge near the mountain village of Lanjaron in Spain last month.

Miss de Abreu was doing her second bungee jump of the day with a local adventure sports firm when the tragedy struck.

In July Guardia Civil investigators submitted a report to an investigating judge probing the tragedy which highlighted safety failures.

The report claimed the sole monitor for the 14-strong group 'did not do his job with sufficient care and the necessary precautions.'

A spokesman for the Guardia Civil in Granada, near to where Kleyo was killed, said the unnamed adventure sports expert stood accused of negligent homicide along with the owner of the firm that organised the jump.
