Summary
If you like a thrill, it's easy to fall for New Zealand. Adventure tourism is one of the country's most lucrative industries, and bungee jumping was practically invented there. But not everyone walks away from an extreme sports experience in New Zealand. Over the past eight years at least 50 people have died in accidents that may have been preventable if stricter litigation and compensation guidelines had been in place. Tour operators scoff at what they feel is a lawsuit-happy mindset, and recommend that those who are "scared of getting their knees dirty" go elsewhere for vacation. Is it possible to keep visitors safe without taking the adventure out of adventure tourism? This program examines New Zealand's adventure tourism industry and exposes significant flaws in the country's safety regulations. With A. J. Hackett, founder of the first commercial bungee-jumping enterprise
