A 23-year-old British woman died Tuesday during a bungee jumping accident in southern Spain, where she was traveling.

Kleyo De Abreu suffered fatal injuries when she hit the wall of a small bridge beneath the one she jumped from, the Guardian reports. She had already jumped from the bridge once before with a licensed adventure-sports company in Lanjarón, about 20 miles south of Granada. De Abreu was visiting an aunt, who witnessed the accident.

“My daughter is gone and nothing is going to bring her back, but I have spoken to the family and we are all on the same page—we don’t want something like this to happen again,” her father, Bernard Atwell, said. “Every father will say this but she was very special, she was a very beautiful young woman who had all her life ahead of her. She was 23 years old but to me she will always be my little baby and I would very much like to make sure this doesn’t happen again to anybody else.”
