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 we are 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, these five people from Thailand will now 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?
14 people were sat on the Pirates of the Caribbean ridewhen the bar became loose. As a result, five people fell out of their seats and hit the ground. One boy even flew over the guy controlling the ride!
One onlooker somehow managed to capture the scene on camera. They were filming the fair when they obviously heard the screams and directed their camera towards the incident.
One carnival-goer named 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 onthe Pirates of the Caribbean-themed ride!
What happened to those who fell? How injured were they and how? Were they able to get up and walk away after the event? Tune into the video above for some answers!
