Fair warning: this is possibly the worst video in the world for those with a fear of heights who also have to cross a bridge at any time in the future.
A group of French tourists on the Lake Waikaremoana Great Walk put a little too much weight on a flimsy suspension bridge in New Zealand last month, proving that nightmares are real and they can happen on any bridge at any time. After being catapulted off the bridge, the hikers fell nearly 30 feet into the ravine below. No one was hurt, but that doesn’t make the video less stressful.
According to the New Zealand Herald, a cord holding the bridge “released” to cause the incident. The country’s Department of Conservation has launched an investigation, and will likely punish the bridge if any fault is found.
