Bungee Jumping is a fairly new recreational activity, having only been taking place for around 30 years. Originally only the Jumper's ankles were tied to the cord. Now, however for greater control and safety, Bungee Jumpers can be attached with a body harness too. The other end is attached to the top of the stationary object, which can be a crane or a bridge or any other tall object. The cord stretches back and forth until the energy from the jump has been exhausted.

History of Bungee Jumping
The first modern day Bungee Jump was in 1979. Four Oxford University students jumped off Clifton Suspension Bridge in Bristol using nylon braided rubber shock cords and dressed in top hats and tails.
If you would rather not do a Bungee Jump alone, you have the option of taking a Tandem Bungee Jump, where you and a second person will be strapped together at the top of the crane and take the plunge together.
Several million successful jumps have taken place worldwide since 1980. More than 650,000 people have taken the plunge from the historic Kawarau Bridge in New Zealand.
Common Injuries whilst Bungee Jumping
Bungee Jumping is an extreme sport and injuries can occur. There is a wide spectrum of possible injuries during a jump.
There have also been some fatalities resulting from the miscalculation of rope length and other factors.
