17-year-old Dutch girl on holiday in Spain becomes latest bungee jump fatality

Update:Girl may have heard "now jump" on "do not jump" command.

A language barrier may explain the death of a 17-year-old Dutch girl who became the latest person to die during a bungee jump in Spain when she fell 40m (130ft) onto a dry riverbed Monday (10 August).

Local police also told the paper that they were unaware that groups were using the bridge as a bungee jump platform. An investigation into the incident is ongoing.

The girl, who has not yet been formally identified, was staying at a surf camp in the area with a group of friends from the Netherlands and Belgium as well as a team of mentors.

It is thought the girl was attempting to try "puenting, " in which the jumper is attached to two cords then swings from the bridge.

Emergency services attended the scene and attempted to save the girl but she was pronounced dead a short time later. Psychologists were deployed to help the girl's friends, some of whom witnessed the incident.

What is adventure travel insurance used for?

Adventure travel insurance is used when one is going on an adventure holiday. This include holidays that involve extreme sports, going through jungles or more risky adventures. It covers one against accidents.
It is a wise idea to make sure that you have good medical coverage included with your insurance and that there is no fine print that leaves you sick or injured in a hospital somewhere you really don't want to be. Even getting sick or injured in 1st world countries could end up leaving you broke so it pays to be very careful with whats included in your policy.
