Woman Falls From Fairground Ride Before It Smashes Into Her

Woman Falls From Fairground Ride Before It Smashes Into Her

This is the moment a woman fell from a fairground ride before being hit by it as she lay on the platform below.

The woman's safety restraint is believed to have flown open mid-air as the ride called 'The Pendulum' flipped upside down.

The unidentified woman was at a funfair in the city of Ciudad Juarez in the northern Mexican state of Chihuahua.

In the footage, she can be seen dangling from the top of the ride before it descends and knocks her off the platform. Screams can be heard from other people on the attraction.

According to local media reports, the young woman was left hanging from the ride after a security failure.

She then fell to the floor and was swept off the platform by the pendulum ride which continued to move around.

The victim was helped by bystanders and got to her feet after the incident while workers stopped the ride.

According to reports, the local authorities closed the entire fairground as organisers did not have the correct permissions and security measures in place.

The Civil Protection general director, Efren Matamoros, confirmed that inspectors checked the fairground's rides and closed the area after discovering the correct permits were not in place.

There have been no further updates on any injuries the woman may have sustained on the ride.

Back in November, 18-year-old Andres Perez was on a ride called Turbo Force while at a fairground in Tlaxcala, Mexico.

The teen is said to have been on the ride, which swings around 360 degrees, when he somehow fell out and dropped 131 feet (40 metres), but was miraculously saved by the canvas of a nearby stall.

Antonio Carvajal Sampero, the man in charge of organising the fairground, reportedly visited the man in hospital to see if how he was doing.

He told local media: "Andres is out of danger and is receiving the full support of the organisation. We will be following his progress and will pay the costs of the hospital."

He went on to say that safety measures were being 'reinforced' at the park and said that an investigation had been launched.

Jose Antonio Ramirez Hernandez, head of the civil protection in the state, said the Turbo Force ride had been taken down to prevent any other incidents.

So, reminder guys - don't venture to any funfairs in Mexico. They're obviously pretty bad news.
