This is the hilarious moment a seagull smacked into a screaming teenager’s face on a 75mph slingshot ride at a beachside fairground.  

Kiley Holman, 13, decided to try the SpringShot ride at New Jersey‘s Morey’s Pier amusement park while celebrating her friend Georgia Reed’s birthday.

Footage posted online on July 13 captured the moment a black-headed gull slammed into Kiley’s face as the slingshot ride propelled forwards. 

Realizing what had happened, a stunned Kiley panicked as she grabbed the bird and threw it away from her.  

Kiley told Fox News she could see the seagull coming towards her as the ride launched. She added: ‘I knew it was going to hit me. I didn’t know what to do so I waited for it to spin over and then I just grabbed it and threw it off me quick.’ 

It is thought to have escaped uninjured, although it left a few feathers behind.

Georgia, 14, who lives near Kiley in Weatherly, Pennsylvania, seemed oblivious to the dramatic encounter as she continued screaming.

She told Fox News she didn’t have a clue what had happened until Kiley explained.

Georgia’s mother, Arena Reed, told Action News she didn’t realize what had happened until the ride had finished.

She added: ‘I saw the wings fall from the vehicle, but at first I thought they were tickets.’

She said the girls couldn’t stop laughing after Kiley revealed a seagull had joined them on the ride.
