Hero kid stuck on roller coaster dabs while waiting for rescue
What would Cam do?
There’s nothing more nerve-wracking at a theme park than the anticipation that builds over a roller coaster’s slow, initial climb. Except, of course, when it completely stops in its tracks.
The Storm Coaster at Sea World Australia broke down on Friday, trapping eight people in a car, the Courier Mail reports. As the helicopters circled overhead, heavy winds bore down, and workers scrambled to rescue the passengers, one of the kids in the coaster did what anyone should do in a time of such personal crisis: He dabbed.
The ride had stopped after a sensor error triggered its safety systems, a spokesperson told Yahoo. “[O]ur highly trained staff ensured the safest outcome was achieved with the guests led down the stairs to ground level without incident.”
But I think we all know who the real hero was.
