A favorite attraction at many water parks is the wave pool, a large body of water that releases small artificial waves that mimic the ocean. However, the fun times at the wave pool at one water park in China came to a quick end when it released an enormous tsunami on all the swimmers. It was all caught on camera and posted to Twitter with the caption, “Water world Tsunami injuring many in Yanbian, Manchuria. The operator got drunk and turned the wave magnitude to maximum level.”

The wave machine broke, per the water park’s spokesperson.

“It was caused by a mechanical fault. Only around 10 people were injured,” a Shuiyun Water Park spokesperson told Metro. Shuiyun Water Park is located in the Jilin Province which is in north-eastern China.

Although the spokesperson said only 10 people were hurt, other international reports have said that around 44 people were injured. Many of the people were injured suffered broken bones.

After the wave started to form and customers realized they were about to get smacked, the chaos started to insue. One video captures water park-goers towards the front of the pool, where the wave began, being thrown around like a tsunami just hit. That video also shows people who were not even in the pool running from the wave.

A theme park worker told Beijing Times on Tuesday that an “accidental breakdown in machinery” was the cause of the incident.

“Online rumors say that a worker wrongly operated the controls, but in reality, it was a problem with the equipment,” the employee was quoted as saying.

But with so many conflicting reports about injuries, most people aren’t buying into the parks vague explanation about what happened. A  few people on Twitter claimed to be witnesses to the incident.

The general question on most people minds is ‘why does the pool have a setting that high, to begin with?’
