Terrifying reports are coming in from the United Kingdom’s oldest theme park where authorities and rescue services were forced to intervene after a ride collapsed mid-air.
According to local media reports, horrified onlookers watched in shock as fearful thrill seekers started to pull out of the famous Shipwreck Ride at the country’s oldest theme park.
The exact location of the ride was identified to be the Isle of Wight at the Blackgang Chine Theme Park which suddenly collapsed mid-air with a full audience onboard.
Panic, horror, and fear filled the air as many riders including young kids began to scream for help while others started to free themselves from the ride in a frantic manner.
Meanwhile, witnesses rushed to the scene and informed authorities who began rescue and recovery operations to try and avoid any casualties and ensure all riders were brought down to the ground safely.
“There were hysterical screams all around. We didn’t know if we would be able to make it out alive. I just don’t have any words. I don’t think I’ll be riding something like this again”- explained one horrified passenger of the thrilling ride that collapsed.
But despite authorities’ intervention, two of the riders still suffered minor injuries and hence were immediately rushed to a nearby medical facility named St. Mary’s Hospital.
Sources revealed how the ride managed to tip onto one side, right before collapsing, leaving both authorities, riders, and onlookers stunned.
Another participant of the ride says the ride began very slowly and then all of sudden, it just tipped. Many assumed that the mishap was just a part of the ride but when it collapsed mid-air, that’s when reality sunk in as screams filled the air.
Investigations into the accident have begun as many could never even begin to imagine something like this coming from one of the oldest rides in town.
