Mass bungee jump from railway bridge
Around 135 bungee jumpers leapt from a bridge at the same time in front of a roaring crowd.
Onlookers screamed and cheered at the mass bungee jump from a railway bridge in Russia.
A video uploaded to YouTube shows the mass bungee and then jumpers swinging together above the river below
The first modern bungee jumps were made on 1 April 1979 from the 250-foot Clifton Suspension Bridge in Bristol, by members of the Oxford University Dangerous Sports Club.
The jumpers were arrested shortly after, but continued with jumps in the US from the Golden Gate and Royal Gorge bridges, spreading the concept worldwide.
