Boy Discovers Something COMPLETELY Unexpected While Ziplining
Consider this scenario: you’ve carefully planned a fun day out with the family at a treetops-style ziplining adventure park. You’ve signed the waivers, packed a picnic lunch and brought the camera. All bases are covered, you’ve even remembered the sunscreen!
So you send your son off down the zipline with the guide, only for him to crash into something completely unexpected on the way down…
The look on that little boy’s face!! This super sweet encounter is undoubtedly something he won’t forget in a hurry!
“I just clocked him straight in the face. What do I do about the sloth?” the boy asks in the video.
The tour guide answers, “We just wait.”
Flavio Leiton Ramos, the owner of the zipline park in Costa Rica said they did not expect a sloth to be on the cable, since the child was the last of eight customers to leave the platform.
“So seven people went on that cable and there was no sloth on it, and within 30 seconds a sloth got on the cable,” Ramos said. “The good thing was that the child was doing a great job by using the brake, and also since the tour guide was with him, was able to handle the situation. But really the child did a great job.”
The amazing clip was shared to Reddit’s sub Unexpected yesterday by user u/discometric where it has been upvoted and commented on tens of thousands of times.
“One of the greatest things I’ve seen on this thread,” wrote the top commenter. “Truly unexpected”
“I got a lot of “Oh Hey fellas, I didn’t see you there!” wave vibes,” added another.
Other Redditors were concerned for the sloth, worried that he was injured in the crash.
“That looked like it would hurt for the sloth. Less the child ramming it but the toes getting caught by the zip line attachment,” posed u/Kaeny.
“They sometimes misjudge their branches and take 60ft falls and just kinda are ok,” added u/Antisocialite99. “I do feel bad if he got scared but the kid possibly slightly bumping him ain’t shit compared to what they do to themselves.”
“Sloth toes are all claw,” reassured u/el_pez_3.
The park owner explained that it all worked out in the end: “The sloth or child weren’t hurt, and they just had to wait for the sloth to get out of the way for around 15 minutes,” Ramos said.
