Two thrill-seekers avoided a possible catastrophe at a Panama City, Florida amusement park. A slingshot ride was just about to be launched into the air with passengers inside. Just before the ride operator sent them flying, a cable on the ride snapped and frayed. Attendants removed the guys from the ride. No one was injured. Officials at the Cobra Adventure Park did not offer a comment but the person who shot the video said the park gave the men a refund. The guys went on to ride the go-carts at the park.
