Visitors were horrified when they saw the mangled corpse of a man who was thrown from a ride at an amusement park on Feb. 22. Investigators are trying to determine how he was thrown from the ride and into the void after his seat-belt apparently gave way.
The incident was captured on an amateur video. The video shows the moment the man was thrown into the air, falling from a considerable height. The video lasts a little less than five seconds. The video was first posted at the Live Leaks website, which stated that the man died as a result of his injuries. This has not yet been confirmed.
The incident occurred in the city of Sanmenxia, in northern Henan province, at the Yangshao Square amusement park in China. According to Live Links, "A middle-aged man accidentally falling from a high altitude amusement machine. The man's seat belt suddenly ruptured."
