A woman’s bungee chord breaks mid-air, sending her crashing 140ft into the water below.

The 29-year-old somehow survived the fall, but suffered severe injuries to her head, neck and chest and was hospitalised for a month.

The owner of the attraction, in Chuncheon, South Korea, has been charged with professional negligence.

The woman, named only as Yoo, was being filmed by her boyfriend on the ground as she leaped head first from the platform.

But the bungee chord gives way the moment it tightens, sending her plunging into the water.

According to the Korean Times, Yoo said: ”There was no rebound from the rope I was attached to and I fell straight down into the water below.

”The employee made me jump despite not securing the rope to a safety hook.”

Police checked the footage and arrested the man who was operating the attraction when the accident happened, on September 14.
