Luckily her legs got caught up in the ropes, which prevented her from falling to the ground, but the video of the episode shows her head was just inches from an elevated platform as she swung back and forth upside down.

The crowd was stunned as the accident unfolded. A bystander quickly tried to grab the dangling woman as she swung by, eventually grabbing hold of her hand to slow her momentum down.

The ride was part of an annual street fair at a park in central Paris.  

WATCH: Bird slams into face of shocked thrill seeker on roller coaster

Roller coasters are supposed to be frightening as they move at high speeds through twists and turns, up steep inclines, and twice as fast down heart-stopping hills, but a bird strike isn’t supposed to be part of the terror.

But that’s exactly what happened on a roller coaster in Spain billed as Europe’s fastest coaster.

It was all caught on camera, too, at the new Ferrari Land in Barcelona.

A pigeon struck the shocked coaster rider in the face at the top of a 367-foot vertical track on the Red Force roller coaster while traveling more than 100 miles an hour, according to the Huffington Post.

The thrill seeker, who was in the front seat of the coaster with a friend, looked stunned when the bird first hit him, then the force of the ride pinned the pigeon to the man’s neck before it was able to flutter away.

Although he did have a little blood on his face, the rider recovered quickly and seemed to enjoy the rest of the ride.

It’s unclear if the blood belonged to the man or the bird.

Video of a worker at Walt Disney World mopping the floors of a restaurant at the Art Animation Resort and then cleaning the tables with the same dirty mop is gaining some attention.

“Anybody with any kind of common sense can see that is unsanitary,” said Jesse Arias, the man who took and shared the video with WFTV. “It’s just really disturbing that they were doing something like that and exposing us to diseases. There are thousands of people that walk those parks a day.”

Arias said the resort manager comped him for the cost of his hotel, but he said it still bothered him. Afterward, he wrote letters to Disney, but he said he never got a satisfying response.

A spokesperson for the resort said that when workers found out about the incident, they immediately took action.

The spokesperson said it was an isolated incident.

Disney officials said the woman in the video works for a third-party vendor and she is no longer welcome on Disney property.

Paul Cook, a retired health inspector, said he had never seen anything like it.

“I would have immediately closed that place and had them come in and say, 'You have to retrain your employees on properly cleaning, sanitizing food service equipment and properly cleaning the floor,” Cook said.

The Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation website listed a few minor violations since the resort opened in 2012. None involved the food service area.
