Cable snaps on slingshot ride, sends riders into air
Cap-d’Agde, France — A 24-year-old suffered a broken leg when a cable on a slingshot ride at a French theme park snapped, causing the ride cage to collide with a support tower.
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.
