A Colorado woman has died in a bungee accident on January 4 but investigators say the device was functioning properly and they are looking into other factors involved.

Ciara Romero, a 20-year-old nurse, died while using a 70-foot bungee-jump feature at Get Air at the Silo Trampoline Park, an indoor recreation park in Grand Junction.

The device was tested after the accident by the Department of Labor and Employment, which worked with Head Rush, the makers of the bungee, and has confirmed that it is now looking at other factors in the case, 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 by Head Rush.

‘The inspection and testing determined that the device, webbing, and triple-locking carabiner were found to be intact, and functioning normally, with no apparent damage.’

Cher Haavind, a spokeswoman for the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment, confirmed the investigation into Romero’s death is moving forward.

She says they will refocus on eyewitness statements and will continue to work with local police.

‘We’re looking at all possible causes,’ she said. ‘This is extremely rare, which is why the investigation is taking longer.’
