    The Worlds Oldest Bungy Jumper

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Mohr Keet, 96, jumped off the Bloukrans Bridge at 216 meters high on April 6. It was his third jump with Face Adrenaline. 'Every time he comes to jump, he is scared,' said bungypeople. 'But for him, it's all about overcoming fear.' Face Adrenaline submitted Keet's jump to the Guinness Book of World Records.
    - katie, CNN iReport producer

    The Worlds Oldest bungy Jumper. Mr Mohr Keet, at the tender age of 96 (ninety six!), bungy jumped from the Bloukrans Bridge, which is the worlds highest comercial bungy bridge. The Bloukrans Bridge Bungy is run by Face Adrenalin and is located on the Gardern Route, South Africa.

     

    An interesting addition to this is that Mr Keet's daughter jumped after him - she is only 72 years young.
