On New Year’s Eve, Erin Laung Worth’s bungee cord snapped as she plummeted off the Victoria Falls bridge on the Zambia-Zimbabwe border, sending her down into the Zambezi River. She survived both the fall and the crocodile-infested waters.
Here’s what she told Australia’s Channel 9 News:
“I landed with my legs tied and then had to swim to the Zimbabwe side (of the river) through the rapids … It was quite scary because a couple of times the rope actually got caught on some rocks or debris … I actually had to swim down and yank the bungee cord out of whatever it was caught on to make it to the surface.”
Quite scary indeed. Check out the video:
