Woman dies in fall after mishearing bungee jump instructor

A woman fell to her death earlier this week after she misheard her bungee jump instructor. The incident occurred Sunday in Amaga, a town in northern Colombia, when Yecenia Morales, 25, was waiting for her chance to leap from a viaduct. She misheard the instructor who had told her boyfriend to jump and stepped off the platform before her bungee cord was attached and plummeted 150 feet. “She got confused. The signal was for the boyfriend to jump because he was already attached to the security equipment,” Fredonia mayor Gustavo Guzmán told El Tiempo. “They had only put the harness on her so she got confused and rushed.” An investigation is currently underway into whether the company operating the tour had proper licenses and qualifications.
