VA Beach bungee jumping
The 19-year-old girl was only identified by her first name, Ksenia, at the scene of the accident
Originally invented in the US, this variation of the bungee jump is known as 'rope jumping'
After hitting the ground at great speed, an ambulance was called and the girl was taken to hospital
But the stunt in the city of Murmansk, located in north-western Russia's Murmansk Oblast region, went horrifically wrong.
She hits the ground with her speed almost unimpeded, and is instantly knocked unconscious and left hanging from the rope as a voice in the background of the recording asks if she is okay.
Originally invented in the U.S, this variation of the bungee jump, known as 'rope jumping, ' has been taken to new extremes by Russian adrenaline junkies.
Rather than the springy cord used in bungee jumping, rope jumpers use nylon ropes that stretch to absorb a fall, so instead of bouncing, jumpers slow down as the rope catches their fall.

The woman's condition is reportedly critical and she is still in intensive care in the hospital
Instagram user kostya_grinvald, who managed to record the unlucky jump from the opposite building said that he had instantly called for an ambulance.
He said: 'We wanted to take some beautiful panorama pictures by climbing onto the property, and happened to be witnesses to what was a terrible accident.'
By the time Kostya and his friend got down to the ground, the girl was already surrounded by people. One of the men, who is believed to be Ksenia's boyfriend was asking everybody to stay away.
According to local media, the organisers of the illegal jump were charging 900 roubles, or £9, and were making people sign a form absolving them of any consequences if anything were to go wrong.
