    Bungee Jumper Dies After Hitting Bridge

    A 23-year-old tourist suffered fatal injuries while bungee jumping from a bridge in southern Spain, local police told NBC News on Wednesday.

    The British woman's aunt was watching as the victim struck an older, stone bridge below, officials said.

    Salvador Sifuentes, spokesman for the local police in Granada, said officials were investigating whether there was an error in calculating the length of the bungee rope.

    "The girl's body was left hanging … she did not hit the ground," he added.
