Aussie's plunge after bungy cord snaps

AN Australian woman escaped with just cuts and bruises after her bungy cord snapped during a New Year's Eve jump in Africa, sending her flying head-first into raging, crocodile-infested waters.

Erin Langworthy's ill-fated jump from the Victoria Falls bridge - 111 metres above the Zambezi River - was caught on camera, showing the rope snapping and a large splash in the water below.

The footage showed her being washed downstream with the bungy cord still wrapped around her legs.
"It went black straight away and I felt like I'd been slapped all over," the 22-year-old Perth woman told Nine News.

In the video her friends' shocked reactions can be heard, including one girl urging the bungy operators to do something.
