Dad Captures Terrifying Moment His Son and Wife Rides a Slingshot

This is why I will never go on a sling shot ride.

Amusement parks are known to give us the best thrills with the different rides that guarantee euphoria and all mixed emotions to thrill-seekers, from kids to adults. A very famous and extreme ride available today is the Slingshot. It is supposed to be fun too until this happened.

13-year-old Trevor Larson and family friend Carrie Sueker are being strapped into place on The Catapult at Mt Olympus Theme Park & Water Park in Wisconsin Dells when suddenly, the Slingshot cable snapped and was whipped to the ground. Luckily, it happened before they were even catapulted into the air.

Moments before that, a man can be heard saying in the background,

‘I’ll pray for you. The ropes are looking a little frayed.’

He was right all along. The rope snapped just seconds before the operator was due to hit the button to send them into the air. Fortunately, no one was hurt. Meanwhile, the theme park has closed the ride while an investigation takes place.

Owner Nick Laskaris said this type of incident has never happened before at the theme park.

‘It’s unfortunate. Mechanical failures unfortunately do happen’ he added.

As paying customers, we hope to get our money’s worth and expect that our safety is always a number one priority. However, errors occur and this is one of those you definitely don’t want to be a part of. Never mind the nerve-racking ride, this is enough to give us chills.

Our bodies are host to countless microbial organisms that are simply not visible to the naked eye. Some may be grossed out to know about them but the truth is that we benefit and depend on these microbes for important reasons. Good bacteria protects us from the harmful ones living in and on the visible parts of our bodies. It also helps combat  human diseases.

Lab technician Tasha Sturm of Cabrillo College in California  recently captured a variety of microorganisms present on her 8-year-old son's hand after a few minutes of playing outside.

Sturm had her son place his hand in a bowl with tryptic soy agar which forms a nutritious jelly that microbial bacteria like to eat. She then made sure that her son's palm was gently pressed to make contact with the agar. Afterwards, she incubated the specimen and set it aside. After a few days, this is how it looked like.
