THIS is the horrific moment a festival-goer’s hair got stuck in a Ferris wheel.
The ordeal occurred in the Indian city of Dwarka during the Shireshwar carnival in Khambhalia, Gujarat, when a woman’s hair got caught in the fairground ride.
The woman screamed in pain as her hair became caught in the massive swinging structure, which could have cost her her life if staff had not reacted quickly enough.
The footage shows the victim couldn’t move an inch as all of her hair was pulled by the shaft.
The fair staff immediately rushed to stop the Ferris wheel.
As the joyride came to a halt, the brave men climbed onto the swing to untangle her hair 25 feet up.
In the scary clip, locals, including Ferris’ employees, were seen trying to remove her hair from the Ferris wheel.
The video then shows stunned passers-by watching the horrific scenario unfold before their eyes. Some of them give suggestions to the rescuers on how to untangle the lady’s hair.
Some of the young spectators laughed at the precarious situation.
The woman’s hair was reportedly completely ripped out in order to release her.
The video also shows a man cutting a woman’s hair with a knife while another holds her hair for support.
Meanwhile, carnival residents were upset and expressed significant concerns about safety at similar events.
“The lady writhed in pain. “Who will be held responsible for this unfortunate incident?” Pramod Kumar, an eyewitness, told The Sun Online.
“I hope we learn a lesson from these incidents and such incidents will not happen again in the near future,” said another.
Similarly, earlier this year, a 20-year-old girl from Bankura, West Bengal, died after her hair got caught in the rotator shaft of the Ferris wheel.
The girl was reportedly thrown to the ground, her skin trapping her head in the swing.
Elsewhere, a student on a picnic and enjoying a joyride on the Ferris wheel at Mansbal Park in Ganderbal district of central Kashmir, India, narrowly escaped a potentially dangerous scenario in August.
The schoolgirl threw herself through a narrow gap before grasping the iron bars tightly.
The girl was seen swinging in the air and clinging fearfully to an iron bar of the bucket before being pulled to safety.
It comes after a teenager was tragically killed on an adrenaline spin ride in France earlier that month.
The 17-year-old, known only as Sammy, died at the theme park in Cap D’Agde, southern France, after strong winds were believed to have rocked the ride.
Elsewhere, a woman died and several children were injured in a horror rollercoaster crash in Sweden.
The 35-year-old died as nine people, including children, were taken to hospital after the accident at Grona Lund amusement park in Stockholm.
