WATCH: Wave Pool Transformed Into A “Tsunami" In China

More than 40 people have been injured after getting caught in a giant wave in a swimming pool full of people.

Authorities have blamed malfunctioning equipment for the sudden tidal wave in the theme park pool.

The South China Morning Postsaid Monday’s incident happened at Yulong Shuiyun Water Amusement Park, in the city of Longjing.

Video clips of the incident show a sudden three-metre wave overwhelming dozens of swimmers in a large pool at the park. Everyone in the pool, including screaming children and families, had to swim for their lives.
