Footage captured the aftermath of the accident where the girl, believed to be around 16-years-old, was seen standing in obvious pain while bystanders attempted to free her, according to The Indian Express.

She reportedly was trying to take a selfie, but misjudged how close she was to the ferris wheel.

The teenager’s hair got tangled in the huge spinning wheel and its force ripped all the hair clean off her head.

In the video, a friend can be seen comforting the girl while the ride operator frantically attempts to free her.

She was eventually rescued and is believed to be recovering in hospital.
