A bungee jumper broke a bungee cable during a jump: a terrifying moment was caught on video
Eyewitnesses filmed a terrifying moment on camera when a bungee jumper broke off during a jump from a height of a ten-story building: a tourist lost consciousness and fell into a pond. The edition told in more detail Daily Mail.
Mike, a hiker from Hong Kong, was pulled from the water to safety after the elastic rope he was tied to broke during a water jump in Pattaya, Thailand, in February.
According to multiple sources, he sustained injuries to the left side of his body, chest, and lungs, and was taken by staff to the nearest hospital.
The amusement park compensated Mike for the cost of bungee jumping as well as emergency outpatient care.

The recording shows how the bungee cord first stretches, then weakens and breaks, after which the man falls into the water.
Mike jumps down about 100 feet (30 m) before the cable breaks, causing him to simply fall into the water without a safety net.
The video cuts off before the tourist lands. Photographs after the incident show that he is limping and he is being helped out by bystanders.
The staff gave Mike a document in Thai and English to sign before the jump, which he thought was an insurance policy.
After climbing the crane, the staff tied a rope to the tourist's legs and pushed him from the highest point.

Under water, he came to his senses and was able to swim to the surface, and the park staff helped him get out.
Doctors at the hospital gave him pain medication for his injuries and told him that he would be fine.
Most of the damage was to the victim's skin, although he also suffered a lung infection, probably caused by ingestion of dirty water.
Mike was given back the HK$500 ($64) he paid for the jump, and the staff covered the HK$1800 ($230) emergency medical expenses.
In order for the park to reimburse his medical bills upon his return to Hong Kong, Mike must waive the park's liability for the accident.
The victim claims that he spent more than 50 Hong Kong dollars ($000) in medical expenses as a result of the accident.
According to the American Council on Science and Health, deaths occur in 1 in 500 bungee jumps.
This makes it 50 times safer than canoeing. But these figures only take into account deaths, not injuries.
It is reported that between 2015 and 2018, five people died from bungee jumping, while from 1986 to 2002 there were 18 victims.
