Teenager girl died in an accident in Istiklol amusement park, Jizzakh, Uzbekistan after a daredevil 360-degree swing's arm broke in half.

Screams of excitement suddenly change to terror in a theme park when riders realized that the detachment of metal pendulum of the ride is not part of the show.

Dozens of riders were strapped in and flung high in the air by a 360 degree swing.

Uzbek authorities didn't specify how many casualties were involved in the said accident, but a 19-year-old girl has been reportedly killed when the arm of the ride collapsed down to the ground.

The terrifying incident was captured on camera and gone viral on the internet.

This news rapidly spread and shocked the world, thinking that theme parks are supposed to bring happiness and enjoyment not terror. People never expect something like this would happen, only on fantasy movies and nightmares.

The incident serves as a reminder to all the theme parks' management that there should be a proper maintenance and check ups to ensure the safety of everyone. There should be no more life at risk.
