Fairground horror as girl, 11, is left hanging from Ferris wheel when seat ... trends now
An 11-year-old girl was left hanging from a Ferris wheel after an alleged malfunction caused her to fall from her seat.
The terror unfolded when a safety lock on the seat she and her friend were on was said to have unlatched while the ride, at a fairground in Rio Preto da Eva, Brazil, was going around.
The suspected fault caused the seat to flip, prompting the girl and her 13-year-old pal to tumble out.
The girl plummeted more than seven metres and hit the ground with a thud, while the younger girl managed to grab on with her hands.
Footage filmed by fairgoers shows how she is left dangling high above the ground as people below look on in horror.
