Kleyo De Abreu, who had recently returned to Brixton after spending time in Cape Town, was a fashion student of South African and Portuguese descent.

Her father Bernard Atwell has spoken to the press about the shock of losing such a passionate, caring daughter.

He expressed concern for other people planning on bungee-jumping, and that the priority should be to prevent this tragedy from happening to anyone else.

De Abreu died during her second jump off of the Tablate Bridge near Lanjaron, Granada, when she hit the wall of a smaller bridge below.

She was accompanied by her aunt, who lived in the area, who was present during the accident.

The local police released a statement saying that the cause of the accident is still being investigated, but that the victim was bungee-jumping with a registered extreme sports company.
