25-year-old Abdullah Adel Kadhbahman died as a result of the bungee cord ropes attached to his ankles either slipping off or breaking whilst he was rebounding from his jump, causing him to fall and hit the ground surrounding a lake where the jump is located. (See story here).
Meanwhile, the pressing of charges against World Bungee Jump owner, Weenas Janwibolkul, and a member of staff known only as Suranai who attached the safety harnesses to Mr Kadhbahman̕s ankles when he took the fatal jump have been postponed for a third time.
Charges were originally to be pressed last Monday (June 8) (see story here). However, they were first postponed until Thursday (June 11) and then again until today (June 15).
When The Phuket News contacted police to find out what had happened today, Patong Poice's Pol Maj Teerasak Boonsaeng stated that they had been postponed until further notice for reasons unknown.
