Hard to tell, but that's me jumping out of a gondola 200 meters off the ground in Interlachen. I figured the Swiss Alps wouldn't be too bad of a place to die so I gave it a shot.
Travelling through the Swiss countryside on a sunny autumn afternoon was almost as breathtaking an experience. I visited Zurich and Interlachen Switzerland for a day each while living in London. This bungee jump was my primary reason for going to Interlachen.
I read later that an American tourist had died at what I believe was the same site. He jumped from the gondola at 100 meters but they accidentally attached him to the cord for the 200 meter jump.
Kind of ironic that the higher jump would be the safer one.
