| by Michael Allen

22-year-old Australian Erin Langworthy survived after her bungee cord ripped, causing her to splash into the crocodile-infested Zambesi River, which is on the border of Zimbabwe and Zambia in Africa (video below).

On Australia’s Channel 9 news, Langworthy described her frightening New Year’s Eve experience: “The water was going quite quickly and then I started to hear the roaring. I actually had to swim down and yank the bungee cord out of whatever it was caught on to make it to the surface.”

“It went black straight away and I felt like I’d been slapped all over. It was quite scary because a couple of times the rope actually got caught on some rocks or debris."

Langworthy fractured her collarbone and suffered major bruises.
