In a tragic turn of events, a daredevil tourist lost his life after undertaking the world’s second-highest bungee jump at China’s Macau Tower. The unidentified Japanese resident, a 56-year-old man traveling on a Japanese passport, met with a fatal outcome after completing the staggering 764-foot plunge on Sunday, December 3, at 4:30 pm local time.

According to reports from Hong Kong news outlet HK01, the adventurer experienced shortness of breath after the daring jump. Emergency services were promptly summoned to the scene, where the man had ceased breathing and displayed no heartbeat upon their arrival. Despite immediate medical attention at Conde S. Januário Hospital, the tourist could not be revived and was pronounced dead shortly afterward.

The cause of the man’s death remains undisclosed at this time.

The Macau Tower bungee jump, operated by AJ Hackett International, is a Skypark attraction with a stringent safety protocol. Participants are required to disclose certain medical conditions, such as heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and epilepsy, before attempting the jump. The Skypark boasts a ‘perfect safety record’ over four million jumps worldwide.

A spokesperson from AJ Hackett Macau Tower Limited expressed sadness over the incident, extending condolences to the deceased’s family. The spokesperson emphasized that safety is their top priority, with the tourist having followed all safety requirements before the jump. Following the landing, when the tourist reportedly felt unwell, immediate first aid was administered, and authorities were contacted for assistance.

The company is fully cooperating with relevant government departments to conduct a thorough investigation into the incident. AJ Hackett International has been providing thrilling experiences globally for nearly 30 years, with Skypark attractions in locations such as France, Singapore, and Australia.
