Bungee jumper reportedly leaped to death after mishearing instructor


A bungee jumper reportedly misunderstood her instructor – a heart-stopping mistake that led to her death.

Yecenia Morales Gómez leaped off a bridge and fell roughly 150 feet because her harness and bungee cord weren’t attached yet. The 25-year-old and her boyfriend went to Sky Bungee Jumping Amaga in northern Colombia in for their first bungee jumping experience.

Gómez heard an instructor saying to jump and believed it was directed toward her when it was actually for her boyfriend, according to local reports.

“She got confused,” Gustavo Guzmán, the mayor of the municipality of Fredonia, Antioquia, told El Tiempo. “The signal was for the boyfriend to jump because he was already attached to the security equipment. They had only put the harness on her so she got confused and rushed.”

She was pronounced dead on the scene, despite her partner’s attempts to save her by performing CPR. Medical reports said she died of cardiac arrest during the fall.
