Aussie Tourist’s Biggest Mistake in Life …

Posted by te2ataria on May 12, 2010

Doing a bungy jump in New Zealand is like having a brain transplant in Amazon

No, it wasn’t necessarily bungy jumping that nearly killed Mrs Moulder; it was bungy jumping in New Zealand that nearly got her.

First, a little good news for her husband and family: She is showing signs of improvement, a hospital spokeswoman says.

Last Friday, the 39-year-old Australian woman Kirsty Moulder who was holidaying with her husband Rodney in the South Island, decided to experience bungy jumping, a decision which she would probably live to regret for the rest of her life.

She made the 35-metre jump, but on the second bounce she slipped through the bungy, fell into the icy cold waters below and was critically injured in New Zealand’s South Island.

“She sustained chest and arm injuries to her left side, which took the brunt of her impact into the river,” paramedics told the New Zealand Herald.

“She was doing a bungy jump and, on the second bounce, her shoe became dislodged and as she came down she slipped through the bungy and fell into the water,” a paramedic said.

Mrs Moulder underwent a “very long, serious operation” at Christchurch Hospital on Monday night, her mother told local reporters.

“We’re not sure what’s gone wrong and we are working with an independent investigator here in New Zealand to make sure we get to the bottom of what’s happened,” Blair Hartland, a spokesman for Thrillseekers Adventures told AAP.

As for the damages, medical bills and serious injury compensation, he said: “Any arrangements that are being made between us and them are confidential at this stage.”

The blog moderators wish Kirsty Moulder a speedy recovery to the fullest extent possible.

As for anyone planning to write in saying two other people jumped the same day, and they didn’t get killed, that would be of little consolation to Kirsty Moulder.

Let’s hope the macho kiwi culture [sic] won’t poke fun at Kirsty Moulder in the same way they did with the British tourist Emily Jordan who was one of the many tourists tragically killed in New Zealand: Sick NZers Make Fun of British Woman They Killed

The list also takes into account the following factors:

  • Exposure to deadly chemicals
  • Exposure to viral infections
  • Unsanitary food, accommodation
  • Exposure to sewage contaminated beaches and waterways
  • Little or NO access to even rudimentary medical facilities in the case of record numbers of deadly road crashes, and inordinate number of deaths and near-fatal injuries caused by using defective equipment for climbing, tramping, paragliding, bungy jumping, skiing, canoeing, diving and all other mountain, snow, water sports and outdoor activities
  • Deadly roads
  • Defective, old, poorly maintained rental cars, quad-bikes, jet skis, and all other sports equipment
  • Inadequate or NO supervision in venues where extreme sports are touted
  • Little or NO warning posted in dangerous  places and unsafe areas that pose a life threat, or serious injuries, to the visitors, but are invariably advertised as “popular hot spots” to lure unsuspecting foreign visitors

Another Australian Victim

Meanwhile, a young Australian climber is stranded with a suspected collapsed lung in a hut on New Zealand’s highest mountain.

Note to our readers, notice to Google

Once again a perfectly healthy individual was lured to New Zealand, who is now hospitalized with very serious injuries. She may never fully recover from this unnecessary yet life-threatening ordeal.

The Blog Moderators and contributors believe Google, Inc., by blocking, or hiding the information posted on this blog,  denied Mrs and Mr Moulder the opportunity to make informed decisions about (i) choosing New Zealand as a safe holiday destination, and (ii) considering bungy jumping in New Zealand as a safe activity.

To Google Founders and Employees,

How could you live with yourselves, knowing that people are being killed and seriously injured every hour, minute of the day, every day, because you prevented vital information concerning their safety from reaching them?
