Bungee jumping is a recreational activity. It involves jumping from a high surface using an elastic cord attached to the jumper’s body. During the jumper’s fall, the elastic cord stretches, which causes the jumper to bounce up and down until the energy from the jump has been depleted.

Although this activity is rather risky, there have been millions of successful bungee jumps due to safety standards and the strict guidelines for jumping. However, despite the best efforts of bungee operators to conform to safety standards, accidents do happen. Unfortunately, they often result in severe injuries or even death. A frequent cause of accidents is the use of an improperly long cord. It should be much shorter than the height of a place from which the jump takes place. For an extreme challenge like bungee jumping, you also need to be in good general health in order to ensure your safety.
