Father bungee jumps off 200ft bridge with toddler in Malaysia, sparks anger

Published: Updated:

A video of a father bungee jumping off of a 200ft high bridge in Kuala Kuba Bharu in western Malaysia while holding onto his toddler daughter has sparked anger on social media.

Mohd Redha Rozlan, who is known for being the first Malaysian participant in the popular show Vietnam Ninja Warrior, said that his daughter had asked him to be part of the jumping stunt.

In the video, the father is seen patting the girl’s back as he stands on the edge of the bridge before being powerfully pulled back by a rope in the terrifying free fall over a rocky river.

According to the Mirror news site, Rozlan said his daughter was wearing a full safety harness, although it is difficult to see in the footage.

“The equipment is inspected by our staff before someone does the jump, which is from a height of 197 feet,” the newspaper reported bungee jump operator Mohd Shafiq Azmi as saying.

“We adhere to safety requirements especially in the equipment used such as the safety ropes by engaging qualified services providers,” he added.

Azmi said that he has been operating the bungee activity in Selangor for about a year and has had an excess of 200 adrenaline-seekers do the activity.
