Terrifying footage captures the moment in which Yevgenia Leontyeva, 33, 82 feet fell to her death when the experienced jumper later died of her injuries in Kazakhstan after alleged “negligence”.
A mother of three tragically jumped 82 feet to death after an extreme sport jump with “rope free flying” went horribly wrong.
Yevgenia Leontyeva, 33, calmly climbed over the edge of a hotel roof in Karaganda, Kazakhstan, but her support rope was reportedly not secured.
Spectators can be heard screaming as the shocking footage captured the moment of the terrible fall in which she sustained multiple injuries.
Yevgenia, an experienced jumper, was hospitalized where she had an operation for severe head injuries, but unfortunately died shortly afterwards.
The footage also shows a man tightening their straps before another off-camera says, “I love you”.
A friend who was also supposed to jump can be heard when Yevgenia’s jump goes wrong.
The cross line that was designed to slow her fall and let her hang was reportedly either not holding or not being secured.
Yevgenia fell to the ground before dragging 12 feet and crashing into a nearby wall.
Witnesses say the jump took place before an organizer had time to secure the line to a tree.
A man was also reportedly seen falling to the ground.
He is said to have held the safety line that should have been attached and was thrown to the ground due to the force of the fall.
Before the tragic jump, Yevgenia and her friend had posted “Live it up” and “We’re going to fly”.
The woman had three boys under the age of 14, two of her own and the son of a deceased relative.
Many locals reportedly prepared to do extreme jumps in the same spot on Sunday.
A local health spokesman said, “The patient had an operation.
“A craniotomy was performed and the hematoma removed.
“Despite the ongoing medical measures, the patient died.”
Because of the suspicion of “negligence” on the part of the jump organizers, a criminal investigation into her death was initiated.
The maximum possible sentence is 40 days in prison.
Abdominal whirling jump rope, or rope free-flying, is an extreme sport that originated in the United States in the 1990s.
The sport is similar to bungee jumping, but the rope is made of nylon to keep jumpers from jumping.
