A carnival ride at the National Cherry Festival in Traverse City, Michigan malfunctioned last Thursday, and bystanders helped stabilize it.
The Magic Carpet Ride was spinning out of control and rocking back and forth, and people hopped on the platform to keep it steady. The operator unplugged the ride and it slowly came to a stop with no injuries.
