Metal Beam Falls Off of Ferris Wheel at Texas Festival [VIDEO]
The festival is extremely lucky no one was underneath of this thing when came off.
This past Friday, in La Marque, families were attending the Magical Winter Lights Festival. Attendees began panicking when screams could be heard coming from the Ferris Wheel. A short time later, a beam came careening off of the wheel onto the pavement. A witness began filming the incident just before the beam came off.
The festival released the following statement on the situation. “Thankfully we can tell you that no one was injured in this incident and the ride was immediately suspended after all passengers were safely removed from the ride. The support beam that broke ‘is not vital to the structure of the ride and didn’t put any riders in danger.'”
The Ferris Wheel was shut down for the rest of the night, but attendees said it was running the following day.
