As of November 2009, a study conducted by the WESA (World Extreme Sports Association) in North America recorded that 422 people have died as a result of bungee jumping since its rise to popularity beginning on 1 April 1979 from the 250-foot Clifton Suspension Bridge in Bristol, by David Kirke, Chris Baker, Simon Keeling, Tim Hunt and Alan Weston of the Oxford University Dangerous Sports Club. WESA reports that of the chances of death from bungee jumping is approximately 1 in 500,000, and is about as dangerous as traveling 100 miles in an automobile.
