Man Dies From Bungee Jump Because Of Cord That Was Too Long

Tragic footage has emerged of a Brazilian man bungee jumping from a railway bridge that went wrong.

36-year-old Fábio Ezequiel de Moraes had launched himself from 40 metres, aiming for the landing area below but missed because the cord itself was too long.

The video, recorded in São Paulo, Brazil, cuts just prior to the horrific conclusion.

Moraes’ wife and son, six, were reported to be there with him at the time of the incident.

The young child was allegedly gearing up to jump with his dad before opting out.

Warning: Although we have cut it, it’s still distressing.
