A Kazakhstan mother died after jumping off a building without a “rope free-flying” adequately tied.
Yevgenia Leontyeva, 33, is pictured on a rooftop in Karaganda, Kazakhstan, as she prepares to participate in the extreme sport.
On Sunday, Oct. 10, after preparing for the jump, the woman was given permission to go before the organizer could secure her safety rope to the tree. Instead, when she took the jump, he was holding the lifeline in his hand.
Leontyeva, a mother of three boys under 14, was dragged 12 feet horizontally into a wall after plummeting 82 feet to the ground below.
As shown in the actual footage, the force of her fall also dragged the rope-holding organizer to the ground.
The victim was taken to the hospital right away and given urgent surgery.
“The patient was operated on,” a local health spokesperson stated according to the New York Post. “A craniotomy was performed and the removal of the haematoma.”
Leontyeva died from her injuries though the medical staff made their best effort.
The extreme sports business is suspected of “negligence” as the authorities look into Leontyeva’s untimely death.
The company, if proven guilty, would only serve a maximum of 40 days in prison.
According to the Daily Mail, rope jumping, also known as rope free-flying, is a stomach-churning extreme sport that first gained popularity in the U.S. in the 1990s.
This reckless sport is comparable to bungee jumping, but the jumpers do not bounce because the rope is nylon.
It is compared to a combination of bungee jumping and abseiling with dizzying rope swings, which is done from cliffs and high structures.
In July, a similar accident happened due to an organizer’s error in Colombia. A bungee jumper died after a communications error prompted her to jump off a bridge without a secured bungee cord.
