Dutch teenager dies bungee jumping


MADRID: A 17-year-old Dutch tourist died in a bungee jump from a bridge in northern Spain, officials said on Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila). The girl plummeted 40 meters (131 feet), landing on a dry riverbed, in the town of Cabezon de la Sal in Cantabria. “Apparently, she was not fully secured when she jumped,” Mayor Esther Merino told Agence France-Presse about the accident Monday evening. The bungee jump was organized by a company specialising in adventure sports.
