Video has gone viral on Chinese social media of the terrifying moment when one teenager became separated from her bungee cord, falling hard into the river below.
The incident occurred on Friday afternoon at the Shidu Natural Park in the southwestern suburbs of Beijing. Fortunately, the 17-year-old girl survived the fall without any serious injuries.
Afterward, the park told reporters that the bungee cord itself and the equipment had not broken, instead, operators had evidently incorrectly set the rope, leading to the young woman’s horrifying fall.
The attraction has since been suspended while an investigation is carried out, those in charge of the facility have also been suspended.
