A 24-year-old suffered a broken leg when a cable on a slingshot ride at a theme park in France snapped, causing the ride cage to collide with a support tower.

The terrifying video was recorded at Luna Park at Cap d’Agde on France’s Mediterranean coast, according to The Local.

The other person on the ride was not injured.

The theme park blamed the accident on a “manufacturing defect” in the elastic cable, according to multiple reports. The ride is now closed.
