The operator of a Ferris wheel at a Florida flea market got into a brutal brawl
The brawl began after a mother and the employee shared words after getting off the ride
‘Beat his a **, beat his a **!’, One spectator shouts during the fight.
As they fight, images show a crowd of people jumping over a barrier around the ride and throwing punches and kicks, seemingly at the Ferris wheel operator.
At some point during the battle, the Ferris wheel starts moving again, with the spectator accusing the operator of not allowing people to dismount and speed up the ride.
Another employee managed to stop the ride before it got further out of control.
A video of the moments immediately before the fight appears to show the Ferris wheel operator pushing a child and confronting a colleague.
The employee then physically assaulted the mother and knocked her and her child over
From there, people started jumping over the barrier to defend the mother and attack the worker
