A Japanese tourist died after jumping from one of the world’s highest bungee jumps in Macau, China, the New York Post reports.
According to the publication, a 56-year-old Japanese citizen jumped from 233 meters on the Skypark attraction, located on an observation tower in Macau. After this, he began to experience shortness of breath, and after a while, the man stopped breathing altogether. Doctors who arrived at the scene recorded that the tourist had no heartbeat. Doctors were unable to revive him.
The publication notes that no injuries were found on the body of the deceased. However, the cause of the tourist’s death has not yet been established.
The owners of the attraction suggest that the man may not have provided all the information about his health before the jump. Although, according to bungee workers, they require clients to inform the staff in advance about the presence of diseases, in particular, heart problems, high blood pressure, diabetes, epilepsy, previous surgeries, and pregnancy.
Macau’s Skypark is the second-highest commercial bungee jump in the world, second only to China’s 260-metre Zhangjiajie Glass Bridge Bungee.
Skypark visitors pay about $360 per jump.
