A businessman has fallen to his death in a bungee jumping accident after the rope reportedly snapped.

Adam Esteves Gomes Dias Martins, 25, plunged off the 100-metre high Prainha Viaduct, in the municipality of Antonio Dias, in south east Brazil.

The exact cause of the accident at the popular beauty spot on October 3 has not been confirmed.

But there are suggestions that either his rope snapped or it was too long, according to local media reports.

His family paid tribute to the computer technician and said it was a “huge loss”.

Emergency services were called to the scene by his friends, who he had been practicing bungee jumping with.

When they arrived he was pronounced dead at the site.

They had to treat some of his pals, who were in shock from witnessing the horror.

According to reports, he paid £7 for the jump, although the firm that organised it has not been named.

An only child, he worked in the neighbouring municipality of Nova Era and was buried on October 4.
