POV: Stuck on the Ferris Wheel During Texas State Fair Shooting
'Why are you standing, oh my god!"
By now most people have heard about the shooting incident at the Texas State Fair over the weekend.
It never occurred to me that people were stuck on the rides when all of this went down.

Twitter user @can0fsoup posted a wild video from the moment the shooting began. You can see people running for their lives towards the exits. I'm not sure what would be more scary, being on the ground and potentially running into the shooter or slowly coming around on the wheel and being stuck in that cage.
As the camera pans from the crowd below back into the car, you can see a guy crouched down in order to be out of the path of any gunfire. He asks the camera person a great question. "Why are you standing?"
I stopped riding fair rides years ago, I just don't trust them. Now this just reinforces those fears. If anything were to go down, you would be stuck up there. No sir, not me.
