Caught On Camera: Water Slide Snaps In Half, Throws People 30-Feet Down

Most recent maintenance check of the ride happened over nine months ago.

A terrifying moment was caught on camera in Indonesia's Kenjeran Park where a huge water slide snapped in half and crashed to the ground.

According to Daily Star , those who were trapped inside the water slide were thrown 30-feet to the ground in front of stunned onlookers. Horrifying footage of the incident, which happened on May 7, has gone viral on social media. It shows one section of a spiralling enclosed tube slide collapsing and onlookers screaming as swimmers fell to the concrete floor.

Out of 16 people who were trapped inside the slide, eight of them were taken to a nearby hospital, and three of those suffered broken bones, Daily Star reported. The water park, located in Surabaya city, reportedly said that the accident happened because the ride had worn out and weakened over time.

The authorities also admitted that the slide was “overloaded” with people too when the incident took place. The water park informed that the most recent maintenance check happened more than nine months ago.
