An Australian Girl's Bungee Cord Snapped, She Landed in a Crocodile-Infested River . . . and Survived!

An Australian student named Erin Worth was bungee jumping over the Zambezi River in Zimbabwe last week when her bungee cord snapped . . . and somehow she survived. Now the cell phone video from one of her friends has surfaced.

It's hard to tell how far off the ground she was when it snapped, but the bridge she jumped from was over 350 feet up. Then she landed headfirst in the river . . . which is apparently filled with CROCODILES.

Even though Erin's legs were tied together . . . and she blacked out when she hit the water . . . she was eventually able to swim to a rock and hold on until help got there.

She ended up in a hospital in South Africa, where doctors treated her for a few cuts and some MAJOR bruises. But no broken bones.
