Families enjoying the Naperville’s Ribfest in Illinois watched in horror as the man jumped in to the path of the ride while there were people on board.

The man has not yet been named.

Witnesses said the ride hit the man three times before operators were able to turn it off.

The annual event is a celebration of barbecue food and music, according to its website.

Naperville Deputy Police Chief Brian Cunningham said the ride was working properly at the time of the incident.

He said: ‘It was not a ride malfunction and it doesn’t look like it was accidental. It’s a sad situation.’
