People who were at a water park in China got a taste of Tsunami when the wave machine behaved irrationally, which resulted in a 10ft tsunami like wave and injured at least 44 people.
The footage shows the swimmers being thrown around by the powerful waves after it lost total control. The incident took place at Shuiyun Water Park in north eastern China on 29 July.
The video shows people standing by the people as they noticed huge waves. As they realized it was dangerous people rushed to get out of the pool, creating havoc in the process. Swimmers were seen screaming and the aftermath shows a woman lying motionless and injured on the ground.
A spokesperson for the water park said in a statement: “It was caused by a mechanical fault. Only around 10 people were injured.
“The wave pool was closed for a day for repairs. It’s already been fixed and will be open tomorrow.”
However, it was reported later that at least 44 people were injured, with three still being kept in hospital with broken bones and injuries. The park is based in the Yulong Bay Scenic Area, which opened in 2015.
The wave pool will be inspected before it gets a green signal. It is unclear whether the injured tourists were refunded their tickets, which cost 98 RMB (£12; $15).
