Authorities in Colorado are investigating the mysterious bungee jumping death of a 20-year-old Colorado woman.
The Colorado Department of Labor and Employment and the manufacturer of the device that Ciara Romero was using when she died said that it was working properly, according to the Daily Sentinel.
“This inspection involved testing which subjected the device to various loading profiles across a range of weights, where the velocity and force were recorded in simulated descents,” according to a statement from Head Rush Technologies, the device’s manufacturer.
