Footage that was uploaded to Facebook shows a young girl riding a roller coaster with her Uncle and then shows her being smashed in the face by a passing bird in the middle of it. Turns out, the family loved the footage and bought it as a souvenir.
The girl who posted the footage is Nicole Ormiston and she claims that the young girl, named Paige, was riding the DC Rivals Hypercoaster at the Warner Brothers Movie World park in Queensland. Paige was apparently riding with her uncle when the incident occurred.
Ormiston wrote. “She had feathers on her and a beak scratch on her right shoulder. She’s completely shocked, a little bruised but ok. Not sure about the bird? How can you not buy that video?”
The DC Rivals Hypercoaster claims to be the “tallest, longest and fastest ride in the Southern Hemisphere. It features an 89-degree drop and has what it describes as the “world’s first non-inverted loops.”
She wasn’t seriously hurt, thank goodness, and it appears that getting hit in the face by a bird didn’t ruin her enjoyment of the ride, as she laughs at several points during the footage.
