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.
You have been warned:
Yep. Never leaving my home again.
According to the New Zealand Herald, who will forever now also be known as the place who puts things the most light, 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.
