Video Of Boy Fainting Repeatedly On A Sling Shot Ride Is Everything

Sling shot rides are definitely not for the faint-hearted but this 15-year-old probably didn’t take that fact into account when he hopped on one.


Daniel Melendez Barron, 15, was reportedly trying to impress his friend by hopping on to an infamous ride at an amusement park — but let’s just say it didn’t go all too well for him.

Barron went to Six Flags Mexico park with his friend Yohana Medellin, whom he wanted to impress, so he took her to the sling shot ride.

But things did not go as planned when the adrenaline-pumping ride, notorious for knocking out people, did the same to Barron. The ride throws people up in the air using a giant sling shot. 

In the video, Barron can be seen passing out at least four times.

Barron shared the video on his Facebook page with the caption, “I really had fun Yohana Medellin.”

The cute video has gone viral since, with almost 30,000 shares and around 2 million views.

What Barron experienced is a common effect that’s felt by many people on such flash rides.

At such an extreme speed all the blood rushes to the feet and so the brain is momentarily left with no blood or oxygen. The autonomic nervous system stops working properly, resulting in a fall in blood pressure, causing the person to faint.
