A dad has been slammed for his 'reckless' behaviour after a clip was posted online of him bungee jumping almost 200ft from a bridge - while holding his young daughter.

In the clip the little girl can be seen looking, understandably, pretty scared, but dad Mohd Redha Rozlan has since claimed that his daughter asked him if she could be a part of the jump.

Responding to critisim on social media, Rozlan said: "Chill guys, Mecca Mikaela was the one who wanted to do the jump with me. There was no forcing.

"She enjoyed her first jump and requested to do it again, but I was afraid."

He also said the tot was wearing a full safety harness, which is hard to spot in the clip.

The video, which was shot in Kuala Kuba Bharu in the western Malaysian state of Selangor, shows Rozlan harnessed to the bungee gear holding his little girl Mecca.


The little girl doesn't appear to struggle or cry out as her dad is pulled backwards off the bridge, swinging over the gorge while he whoops.

Thankfully, the stunt is said to have gone off without incident.

Bungee jump operator Mohd Shafiq Azmi said: "The equipment is inspected by our staff before someone does the jump, which is from a height of 60 metres (197 feet).

"I understand that safety is a concern as this activity is the first of its kind in Malaysia.

"We adhere to safety requirements, especially in the equipment used such as the safety ropes, by engaging qualified services providers."

However, according to Free Malaysaia Today, Rozlan could find himself in trouble with the police. Human rights lawyer Andrew Khoo told the news outlet: "Yes, action can be taken under the Child Act. This clearly breached safety requirements, too."

A child rights lawyer, Goh Siu Lin, added: "Rope spring jump is an extreme sport and dangerous, and there is a high likelihood of the motions in such an activity causing physical injury to her.

"I have never heard of any child of that age being allowed to participate in such an extreme sports."

Rozlan has hit headlines in the past as the first contestant from Malaysia to compete in the TV show Vietnam Ninja Warrior. He's also appeared on the Malaysian Fear Factor.
