Skyhawk, an amusement park ride in Cedar Point in Ohio, injured two riders when a cable snapped at around 10pm Sunday.
Skyhawk is one of the world’s tallest swing rides. It swings riders back and forth in a scissor motion as high as 125 feet and at speeds of about 60 mph. While in operation, one of the cables for one the carriages broke. The ride did not stop. Instead, power to the ride was cut off, and gravity took over. While the ride came to a full stop, the cable whipped around hitting two passengers. One was treated at the scene, and one was taken to the hospital. Neither had life threatening injuries, but it was a very scary scene for everyone involved.
