Australian backpacker Erin Langworthy, 22, is very lucky to live and tell her miraculous story of survival. While bungee jumping in Zambia, Langworthy’s cord snapped and she plunged into the crocodile-infested water below. After falling, her feet were still bound, which made for the swim out of this dangerous area that much more difficult.
What’s amazing is that she could fall head first, with her feet bound, below the world’s largest waterfall leading to a body of water with quite a lot of crocodiles and still make it out alive. This truly sounds like something that would take place in a fairytale because it’s too unbelievable to be realistic.
Mis Langworthy had said:
‘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.
‘I actually had to swim down and yank the bungee cord out of whatever it was caught on to make it to the surface.’
‘When I was first pulled out of the water they put me on my back and so all the water that I’d inhaled meant that I couldn’t breathe, so I made them roll me onto my side.
‘And that’s when I started coughing out water and blood. I think it’s definitely a miracle that I survived.’
Although this incident happened on New Year’s Eve, Langworthy has stayed in the hospital for the past week to recover from her injuries. There is an investigation into what caused this horrific accident. There have been many bungee jumps from this site and this is a rare incident. Luckily, it wasn’t fatal, given the circumstances.

In this economy, people are finding it tough to be able to afford the necessities that they have become comfortable with. This is not only true for families trying to feed their families, but also for many drug addicts who are unable to produce the money needed to buy chemicals that are used to make methamphetamine.
Elizabeth Alisha Greta Halfmoon, 45, from Tulsa, also known to go by Alisha Halfmoon, was arrested for endeavoring to manufacture meth at the 81st and Lewis store.
Halfmoon came into the store around noon (which was verified by the surveillance tapes) and after they noticed she was still there six hours later and acting oddly, they decided to do some further inspecting.
Responding officer David Shelby told Fox 23 that Halfmoon said she was too broke to buy the chemicals and so had to mix them in store.
He said: ‘She didn’t have the money to make the purchases of the chemicals that were needed so she was taking what was needed in the bottle.
‘When I saw her she had just finished mixing sulfuric acid with starter fluid in a bottle.’
The horror stories that people have heard about people making meth and causing explosions, horrified shoppers. In fact, one officer was burned after the meth that he was holding burned through the gloves he was wearing.
Officer Shelby said: ‘When firefighters were on the scene she made statements to them that is what she was doing, she was attempting to obtain these chemicals and was in the process of trying to manufacture meth. However, she said she was not very good at it.’
It was only last month that Halfmoon was arrested in a meth-manufacturing sting, on November 6. She was released just two days before she was arrested again in Walmart.
She has received a deferred sentence and is bonded out on $7,500.
What a fucking moron. How in the world did you think you would not be caught by operating a meth lab in one of the biggest stores? Although, to her credit, she did almost get away with it and had six full hours to whip up a batch of meth on the corporations budget.
