There is no greater fear, no anxiety more specific to the modern era, than of something going horribly wrong on an amusement park ride. But that's exactly what happened at Luna Park in Cap d'Agde, France, when one of the two support cables in a "slingshot" ride snapped, catapulting the car to the side.
Luckily, no one was seriously injured outside of a 24-year-old woman who broke her leg, but this video is truly the stuff of nightmares.
See you guys on the whirling teacups.
