A bungee jumper died after falling 150ft after she misheard her instructor, according to reports. Yecenia Morales Gómez and her boyfriend went to the Sky Bungee Jumping Amaga in Colombia in July 2021 to try out the extreme sport for the first time.

According to locals, the 25-year-old heard the instructor giving the command to jump, thinking the instruction was for her.

In fact, the command was for her boyfriend as her as her harness and bungee cord hadn’t been attached.

As a result, she tragically feel to her death.

Speaking to news outlet El Tiempo, local mayor Gustavo Guzmán said that the tragedy was a result of a misunderstanding.

He said: “She got confused.

“The signal was for the boyfriend to jump because he was already attached to the security equipment.

“They had only put the harness on her so she got confused and rushed.”

Ms Gomez’s boyfriend attempted to perform CPR on her without success.

She was pronounced dead at the scene with medical reports later revealing that she died of a heart attack during the fall.

However, Sky Bungee has denied that Ms Gomez’s death was caused by confusion over commands from the instructor.

In a statement, the company said that no one else had been bungee jumping at the same time as her in accordance with their safety protocols.

They said: “It is not true, as reported, that Yecenia Morales Gómez’s jump was due to the confusion of a jump command given to her friend.

“At the time of the accident, nobody jumped, neither her boyfriend nor anyone else.

“Our protocol is designed for single jumps and with only one person per jump.

“It means that in order to jump a person must finish everything related to the previous person’s jump.”

Sky Bungee added that a video of the incident that went viral shows somebody who had jumped earlier on being recovered.

The company also said they are cooperating with investigations and have surrendered relevant documentation.
