Phuket Misadventure

While I was in Phuket there was a story in the papers about an Englishman who almost died bungee jumping. The bungee operator said he jumped off feet first, against instructions, and scissor-kicked his way out of the harness, falling 165 feet and luckily landing "on his chest," which saved his fool life. The story took six months to make the papers, probably coinciding with the length of the coma.

Can the misguided thrillseeker pictured above be far behind?
