A 16-year-old schoolgirl from Uttar Pradesh suffered injuries after her hair got entangled in a ferris wheel. She was reportedly trying to take a selfie. The girl is currently undergoing treatment at a medical facility.

Unaware of her surroundings, she stood dangerously close to the ride, and her hair got stuck in the Ferris wheel, resulting in a significant portion of it being ripped off from her scalp. The accident occurred outside a college in Baraut city of Baghpat district of Uttar Pradesh.

A video of the incident is making rounds of social media, which shows the teenager being consoled by a friend as people try to free her hair from the Ferris wheel.
