Bungee Jump Death Raises Questions About Foreigners’ ‘Incorrect’ English

37

So diversity is a great thing — right? That’s what the left will sell. But amid all the calls for immigrant rights and all the roll-outs of welcome mats for refugees, here’s a thought to chew: What about the failures of these migrants to learn the language of the country in which they’re coming?

As one girl’s story shows, such failures could proev fatal.

Vera Mol was killed instantly in a bungee jump after her instructor, who hailed from a different country, failed to issue directions in proper English.

A teenager, 17, named Vera Mol plunged to her death during a failed bungee jump after the instructor — who spoke very poor English — gave directions that were misinterpreted.

From the Express:

“The 17-year-old was taking part in an organised jump off of Cabezon de la Sal in Cantabria back in 2015.

“She was in a harness but it was not clipped on to the bungee cord.

“It is thought she misunderstood her instructor, who said “no jump”, but she mistook it for “now jump”, leaping to her untimely death.

“Ms. Mol, of the Netherlands, plunged 40 metres to her death off the bridge, which was above a dry riverbed outside the town of Cabezón de la Sal, in Spain’s northern region of Cantabria.

“She was the last one out of a group of 13 young people to jump off the bridge.

“An inquest into her death found the instructor, who has not been named, should have used the phrase ‘don’t jump’ to avoid any confusion.

“The court heard his English was described as “macarronico”, which means ‘very bad.'”
