A tense video posted on Facebook by an onlooker Friday showed a North Carolina fair worker falling from a Ferris wheel as he tried to save two children stuck inside a tilted carriage as the ride malfunctioned. The two mothers of the children said they are still shaken up by the incident that took place in Greensboro, North Carolina.

The accident at the fair occurred at the Central Carolina Fair as the ride operator stopped the wheel around 9:45 p.m. EDT after one of the carriages appeared to tilt out of its normal position. The employee "followed safety procedures to safely unload all passengers," according to a statement by Central Carolina Fair, reported WSB-TV Atlanta, an ABC affiliate.

The employee who fell trying to rescue the children suffered only from minor injuries. In the video, he is seen trying to restore the gondola car to its normal position when he lost his footing and fell. The children inside the car were not severely hurt but had some minor bruises and one of them bumped his head.

The video of the incident was widely shared on social media on Friday and had garnered 110,000 views and over 1500 shares at the time of publishing this story.

The mother of one of the children that were stuck inside the car spoke to FOX8, a Fox affiliate, on Sunday.

"There needs to be extra training or something," Angela Roach told FOX8. "I will never go back to another fair. I will never put him on another ride like that."

The ride had been restored since the incident after proper inspection by the North Carolina Department of Labor. State officials had approved the ride to be properly working and in use on Saturday. Michael’s Amusement out of Fayetteville is said to be the company that operates the ride. The fair in North Carolina was scheduled to end on Sunday.

Brenda Kindle and Angela Roach, the two mothers of the children stuck on the ride on Friday feel traumatized and explained their horrific experience to CBS affiliate WTSP on Sunday. Their children Carlos and Hunter were also terrified after the incident.

"All you can hear is your seven-year-old child screaming and saying someone help us please someone help us. They are crying at the top of their lungs," said Kindle. "That was the most traumatic experience for me as a mother. I felt helpless that I couldn't do anything at all."

Carlos described to the news outlet their terrifying experience while they were stuck on the ride.

"I thought that something bad was going to happen like one of us was going to pass away," said Carlos.

Following the worker's fall, the crowd gathered in front of the ride began to panic more.

"It started shaking faster and that's when he fell off and it snapped," said Carlos. "We flew back and that's when I hit my head when we flew back."

Parents said they could only look at their children on the ride, swinging back and forth.

"I could see Hunter's face as the thing started tilting," said Roach, Hunter's mother. "All I could do was run and scream and beg them to stop that ride. It was already halfway tilted. Anymore and they would've been out."

None of the children were seriously injured during the accident.

"The only way that my son and her son made it out of there was God," said Kindle. "There wasn't a physical person there but both of those kids had to have angels holding them in the cart."
