These terrifying scenes from a French theme park are everyone’s worst nightmare.

Video has emerged of a slingshot ride’s elastic cables snapping and sending the riders hurtling out of control, at Luna Park on South France’s Mediterranean coast.

The two people in the ball were left suspended in the air for an hour before they were rescued and taken to hospital.

One woman suffered a broken leg when the cage was thrown against a support column, and the other person was not seriously injured, luckily.

Officials from Luna Park said nothing like this has ever happened before, and blamed the incident on a ‘manufacturing defect’ in the elastic. The ride has subsequently been closed for an investigation.
