Seventeen-year-old Vera Mol died after leaping from the Cabezon de la Sal bridge in Cantabria, northern Spain while her rope was still yet to be secured, after misunderstanding an instruction not to jump, The Mirror reports.
17-year-old Vera Mol from Netherlands was in Cantabria, Spain, when she signed up for a bungee jumping experience with a local adventure sports company back in August 2015, the Telegraph reports.
The court also heard that Mol was underage, but the instructor - who has not been named - did not check for parental consent.
New details in the case of the 2015 bungee jump death of a teenager in Spain show that a miscommunication may have led to the girl jumping off a bridge before her rope was secured.
The court was told the instructor's English language skills were "poor" and Vera died due to a misunderstanding.
According to the Daily Mail, the girl could have been saved if the instructor had followed protocol and used the phrase "don't jump".
"The use of the poor English "No jump" could perfectly well be understood as an explicit order to jump by the victim", the judgement continued.
But the rope she was attached too was not to tied to anything else and she plunged to her death.
According to British tabloid The Mirror, the 17-year-old had apparently misinterpreted the instructor's words "no jump" as "now jump", when he in fact meant to say "don't jump", the judge wrote in the ruling.
Flowtrack, who run the bungee jumping company which employed the man have said it was an accident.
The teenager is believed to have misheard the instructor when he said "no jump", instead thinking he'd advised her to "now jump".
