Laughs turned to screams when a man allegedly jumped in front of a carnival ride in Illinois Thursday, killing himself at the scene, police said.

Witnesses at Naperville's Ribfest said the man dove under a ride called Pharaoh's Fury around 3 p.m., ABC Chicago reported.

The swinging ship struck him three times before the operator was able to shut it down, they told the station.

"Appears to be intentional act by victim," the police department tweeted around 5 p.m. local time.

Despite the horror, the festival was seen carrying on.
