A 17-year-old Dutch girl has been killed in a fall while taking part in a bungee-jumping trip in northern Spain, the second such death in the country in less than a month.
Authorities in the Cantabria region said the teenager plunged 130 feet from a bridge over the Cedeja river, though the cause of her fall has not yet been determined.
According to local officials, the emergency services were called to the scene near Cabezón de la Sal at 8.30pm on Monday, and found that the victim had fallen onto a dry part of the riverbed.
It was not clear on Tuesday whether the girl was attempting a bungee jump at the moment of her death, authorities saying only that the 17-year-old was with a group of people on a bungee-jumping trip organised by a sports activity company. A spokesperson the Cantabrian regional government said that the Civil Guard police force was now investigating.
Monday’s death came three weeks after a British tourist was killed in another Spanish bungee-jumping accident. Kleyo de Abreu fell to her death on July 21 after a bungee jump that went wrong over the Tablate river in Granada province.
The 23-year-old Londoner was killed after smashing into a stone bridge 130 feet below the modern viaduct she had leapt off, the accident witnessed by her aunt, whom De Abreu was visiting at the time.
A Civil Guard investigation pointed to criminal negligence on the part of the company organising the jump as there was only one monitor in charge of 14 participants who were invited to drink beer while awaiting their turn. The probe concluded that De Abreu had not had the safety rules sufficiently explained to her and she jumped before the ropes attached to her harness had been tightened.
