A surprise guest. Launched into the air at 120 km / h in a thrill ride, an American teenager saw a seagull crash into her face. This funny scene was filmed and quickly went viral.
Kiley Holman, 13, probably wasn’t expecting this when she moved alongside her friend Georgia – who was celebrating her 14th birthday – to this New Jersey amusement park ride there. a few weeks.
Dubbed Springshot, it was a rather common attraction, in which two people are tied into a kind of open ball, held by two rubber bands, before it is brutally catapulted upwards.
On the way up, the teenager caught a seagull in the face, which was flying there and must have wondered what was going on. She found herself wedged between the young girl and the safety rails. Visibly horrified, Kiley kept her cool and hurried to grab the bird and throw it away from her.
The 13-year-old got away with just a small cut, while the animal also appears to have gotten away with it. In the video, the seagull can be seen successfully flying away after being struck. No injured birds were found near the merry-go-round.
