At Shuiyun Water Park in northeastern China, a wave machine broke at the pool and caused a 10ft ‘tsunami’ which left people with injuries.
The footage shows swimmers suddenly hit by the massive wave and many sat in swimming rings were flipped upside down. A woman can be seen lying with bleeding legs in the footage.
Swimmers started screaming and people who were holidaying there described the wave as a ‘tsunami.’
The park which was opened in 2015 is based in the Yulong Bay Scenic Area, authorities have shut down the wave pool for inspection.
A spokesman for the Shuiyun Water Park in Jilin Province, north-eastern China, said: ‘‘It was caused by a mechanical fault. Only around 10 people were injured.’’
‘‘The wave pool was closed for a day for repairs.”
He claimed that just 10 people had been hurt. Officials said that fewer than 44 people were injured, where three were hospitalized with broken bones and serious abrasions.
It is not clear that the injured tourists were refunded their tickets or not.
