A video showing a person jumping from the Skyride in Seaside Heights is making the rounds on the Internet.
The Skyride is the official name of an aerial tramway that runs about 30 feet above most of the length of the town's boardwalk. A video of a person jumping down to the beach below had more than 13,000 views Monday morning.
The video – which was shot as were beginning to roll into the area Saturday night – shows the Skyride stationary, presumably from a loss of electrical power due to the storms.
"Oh my God, look, they got stuck," shouts the person who took the video, as the camera points toward the ride.
WARNING: A person is heard using what could be considered inappropriate langage. Please be advised.
One rider, a female, drops her shoes down to the sand, then can be seen sliding off the ride and landing on the beach. The video is unclear as to whether a second passenger also jumped off, but implies that person did as well.
Officials in Seaside Heights and a representative for Casino Pier, which operates the Skyride, could not be immediately reached for comment.
A person claiming to be the jumper posted in the comments section of the YouTube video, saying she was alive, but "just sore."
The incident Saturday night is not the first time someone has taken a plunge from the Skyride. In 2010, a Milltown teen was critically injured after falling from the ride. In 1997, three people fell from the ride in a matter of four weeks.
