A video uploaded to YouTube this week appears to show four French tourists in New Zealand plunging approximately 25 feet into the water after a support cable broke on a suspension bridge they were crossing.

An official with the Department of Conservation told the New Zealand Herald the accident happened September 3 and that an investigation was underway.

Both the video description and New Zealand Herald state there were no serious injuries.
