A 17-year-old Dutch tourist died in a bungee jump from a bridge in northern Spain, officials said Tuesday.

The girl plummeted 40 metres (131 feet), landing on a dry river bed, in the town of Cabezon de la Sal in Cantabria.

"Apparently, she was not fully secured when she jumped," Mayor Esther Merino told AFP about the accident Monday evening.

The teenager had gone camping with a group of young people in the town, which lies about 50 kilometres (31 miles) west of Santander.

Their bungee jumps were organised by a company specialising in adventure sports.
