A viral video reveals a seagull slamming right into a Pennsylvania teen’s face as she hurtles into the air on a Jersey Shore amusement park journey.
The shut encounter of the fowl type occurred to Kiley Holman, 13, on July 6 as she was using the Springshot at Morey’s Piers in Wildwood, New Jersey, NBC Philadelphia reported.
An 18-second clip reveals one of many white and grey birds — famed on the Jersey Shore for aggressively snatching meals from vacationers — plowing headfirst into the teenager.
The fowl is momentarily flattened by the drive of the slingshot-style amusement park journey because it slams into the protection harness buckling Kiley into the slingshot cage, its beak caught on her neck.
“It was going the other method and got here proper again at me,” she informed NBC Philadelphia.
Kiley can then be seen within the video calmly pulling the gull off and tossing it into the air, the place it flew away unhurt.
“I did not need to fall out of the journey, so I waited for it to spin over as soon as, after which I shortly grabbed it and threw it off,” she stated.
Kiley informed NBC Philadelphia that she “all the time wished to catch a seagull.”
“I suppose that is my method of catching it,” she stated.
