Swimmers in Northeast China’s Jilin province saw their lives flash before their eyes on Tuesday, July 29 after a colossal swell crashed through a crowded wave pool at a local water park.

The incident occurred in Longjing at around 2.40pm, and injured 44 people. According to a Weibo post by the Longjing Propaganda Department, seven individuals were hospitalized for injuries ranging from fractured ribs to a broken foot. The rest of the injuries were deemed minor.

Fortunately, nobody was killed as a result of the incident.

Rumors have circulated online in recent days, with people claiming a “drunk old man hit the wrong switch” (Longjing Propaganda Department’s words, not ours). However, the local government stated that both this claim and another rumor that a hospital was “packed” with water park victims were false.

Local authorities are still investigating the cause of the incident and the water park is temporarily closed.
