Terrifying moment fairground ride SNAPS in midair as parents watch children plummet to ground 

THIS is the horror moment a swinging fairground ride snapped mid-air as terrified kids plunged to the ground.

Piercing screams from young thrill-seekers echoed around Ataturk Park in Antalya, south-west Turkey, as the giant attraction suddenly broke in two.

Shocking footage shows kids’ faces turn from delight to panic as they became locked in their seats as the ride faltered just moments after it set off at the weekend.

The clip appears to show children enjoying the pendulum ride before the seating section apparently separated from the mechanical arm and crashed to the ground nearby.

Firefighters rushed to the scene and were forced to cut injured and alarmed youngsters out of their seats as the restraints locked in place.

Horrified parents rushed over to help as kids called out for help and they were checked over by first aiders.

The three injured kids – Mete Atik, Yakip Bilal Salarvan, and Bugra Yagiz Koyun, all 11 – were taken to hospital with injuries from the freak accident, but thankfully none were killed.

One of the hurt kids, Bugra, said the ride “flew through the air” after breaking.
