These were the amazing scenes when 135 people jumped on a bridge in Russia in an attempt to beat the current world record.
A video on You Tube shows the group of unnamed thrill seekers, who are all tightened with bungee cords and jump off the bridge at the same time.
The spectators are jubilantly cheered while the extreme sports enthusiasts slide out of the cords several times.

It is not known where the stunt took place or what world record they were trying to beat.
It only comes months after images have appeared of a group of Russian thrill seekers wearing high hats and capes and throwing themselves into the belly of an abandoned cooling tower, kept safe by just an improvised bungee rope.
The men hung on two ropes and the second grabbed the slack as they plunged to the concrete floor of the tower.
Homemade & # 39; rope jumping & # 39; has become a popular underground sport in Russia in recent years and there are reportedly several clubs whose goal is to constantly achieve their own stunts.

Thrillseekers: A mass bridge jump takes place in Russia in an attempt to break the world record
The first modern bungee jumps were made on April 1, 1979 from the 250-foot Clifton Suspension Bridge in Bristol, by members of the Oxford University Dangerous Sports Club.
The jumpers were arrested shortly thereafter, but proceeded by leaps and bounds in the US from the Golden Gate and Royal Gorge bridges, spreading the concept worldwide.
The highest commercial bridge bungee in the world is currently Bloukrans Bridge Bungee in Africa, which has been commercially managed by Face Adrenalin since 1997.
