A young girl was caught on camera hanging from the outside of a circular ride at the Mount Isa 100 Years Celebration event in Queensland, Australia.
Footage shows the girl clutching the side of the cart while suspended several meters above the ground as the ride had slowed down to a near-stop. Attendees at the event watched as the girl used her arms and one leg to grip the cart.
Eventually, she fell to the ground, injuring her leg in the process. The severity of the injury is currently unknown. The girl was immediately taken to a local hospital for medical attention.
The incident has raised concerns about the safety of amusement park rides and the measures in place to ensure the well-being of riders. The investigation into the cause of the incident is ongoing, and officials have yet to comment on whether any action will be taken against the ride operators.
In the wake of this incident, authorities may consider reevaluating the safety measures in place at these events to prevent future accidents.
