Zimbabwe bungee jumping accident

Bungee jumps at Victoria Falls suspended after tourist plunged into Zambezi River

Bungee jump accident drops

"We voluntarily suspended bungee jumping for two days (from Wednesday) to allow an audit of the accident that happened" after a cord snapped, Shearwater Adventures spokesman Clement Mukwasi said.

"This was to allow the auditors, management and crew the opportunity to analyse the causes of the broken cord and review the new system and procedures without distractions."

Jumps could resume from the weekend, he added.

On New Year's Eve, 22-year-old Australian Erin Langworthy jumped from the Victoria Falls bridge and fell headfirst into the Zambezi River, 364 feet below.

The accident was caught on video and Ms Langworthy is seen hitting the water with her feet still tied before being swept towards rapids on the river, which separates Zambia and Zimbabwe.

She managed to avoid any crocodiles and swim to the Zimbabwe side of the river, where she hauled herself out.

She suffered a fractured collar bone and severe bruising and was taken to South Africa for treatment.

Mukwasi said "all other activities including bridge swings, slides tours and the restaurant facility will continue as normal."

Zambia's tourism minister Given Lubinda on Sunday took a bungee jump in an attempt to assure tourists of its safety.

Tourism is the life blood of the towns of Victoria Falls and Livingstone in Zambia, where upmarket resorts attract visitors from around the world.
