LA Galaxy and England soccer star David Beckham was dunked in the water when he took a bungee jump off Auckland’s harbour bridge in New Zealand. Becks so enjoyed the jump that he completed the 134 foot plunge twice.
Beckham and his LA Galaxy teamates are in New Zealand on a promotional tour and took some time out for a little leap into the unknown – it was the first time Beckham has tried bungee jumping. Meanwhile his wife Victoria was apparently making an even bigger splash of her own – whilst on a shopping spree in New York!
