Terrifying moment schoolgirl is left dangling 30ft in mid-air after falling through gap in ferris wheel | The Sun
FOOTAGE has captured the terrifying moment as schoolgirl was left dangling 30 feet in mid-air after falling off a Ferris wheel.
The video, which was taken by an onlooker, shows the child screaming in terror as she holds on for dear life after slipping through a gap in the ride.
The unnamed girl was, however, thankfully left unharmed after two men climbed up nine metres to save her.
The moment was caught on camera at Mansbal Park, in the Ganderbal district, of Central Kashmir, India.
A bystander managed to film the horror mishap in a 16-second video using their mobile phone.
The girl was enjoying the ride with 14 classmates when the Ferris wheel 'speeds up' and she loses her footing.
She then falls down but manages to grab the iron bars of the bucket she was in.
Her legs desperately swing about as one shocked onlooker can be heard saying "she is about to fall down".
The Ferris wheel continued to go round until workers managed to stop the ride.
After she was rescued by the two men, a witness said: "There were nearly 15 students enjoying the ride when the girl fell down through a crack of the bucket.
