A dream vacation to Florida swiftly turned into a nightmare for a man and his son after the pair became stuck suspended 40 feet above an alligator pit.

[post_ads]According to the New York Post, the two were above the pit while attempting to cross a zip line ride at Gatorland in Orlando. As footage shared with local news anchor Stewart Moore of WESH News showed, the two simply had to sit midair and wait for help to arrive.

“You really think you’re having a bad day?” the man who took the video can be heard saying in the clip. “Lemme show you what a real bad day looks like.”

Additional footage from the park, which was also shared by Moore on Facebook, showed the two being reeled back toward the zipline’s tower. At one point a staffer from the park even went out on the line to meet the two midair.

Eventually, both the man and the boy were safely rescued. However, according to Nick Cahippina, manager of the zipline ride, who spoke to WESH, neither one was ever in any imminent danger. In fact, Cahippina noted that this type of incident actually happens “fairly often” and the staff is properly trained in how to handle it.
