Five people in Thailand fell to the ground when the bar on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride loosened—thankfully, no one was seriously injured, but it’s safe to say that they were definitely in shock.
Not many of us go to a carnival with the fear of a ride falling apart while up in the air. It may be in the back of our minds, but once the atmosphere of the carnival takes over, the fear usually vanishes.
Unfortunately, five people from Thailand will always have that fear—if they even dare to go on a ride at a carnival again. Thankfully, no one was seriously injured! So what happened?
Well, 14 people sat on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride when the bar went loose. As a result, five people fell from their seat and smashed into the ground. One boy even flew over the guy controlling the ride!
One onlooker captured the event on camera. They were filming the fair when they obviously heard the screams and directed their camera to the incident.
Carnival attendee, Jidapa, recalled the event: ''The people who fell out hit the floor very hard, but they kind of slid along the ground, too. One of the girls was crying because of the shock. One boy was thrown outside.'
Jidapa said: 'I was taking my young relatives to the fair and watching this ride because it looked so scary. I just heard people screaming at the top then they fell out when the ride came down.' It looks Jidapa will never dare hop on the Pirates of the Caribbean-themed ride.
What happened to those who fell? What were their injuries? Were they able to get up and walk away after the event? Tune into our video for some answers!
