Failed bungee jumping – how to fall in the water at 80 mph! (5 pics + 1 video)

Rishi Baveja, a Cambridge graduate, was in Phuket on holiday to celebrate his degree in engineering. He paid £50 to make the jump at the Jungle Bungy centre in Kathu, whose website claimed it had a 100 per cent safety record… well I guess it’s no longer 100%.
What he thought would be a normal but scary experience revealed to be what you can exactly fear about those services…

He jumped from a 165ft platform and waited while he was in the air for the moment when the elastic cord would snap him back aloft but this moment never came. The harness around his feet did not work properly so he continued accelerating until he hit the surface of a Thai lagoon at 80 mph.
Luckily, his chest hit the water first, avoiding him catastrophic head injuries. Though, he suffered a ruptured spleen, torn liver, collapsed lungs and massive bruising. They had to remove the spleen and he spent a full month in a Bangkok hospital before he could return home.
He said he would not be suing the operators…
