A video of a catering cart losing control on the tarmac near an airplane at Chicago O’Hare International Airport is going viral. The incident that took place on Monday has the internet saying WHAAAAT?

The video that we are talking about was captured by Kevin Klauer, while he was waiting for his flight to Tennesse. He shared the video on his Twitter account with the caption, “Crazy event at ORD. Heads up safety move by a ramp worker!”

The video shows a catering cart spinning crazily on the tarmac of the airport, very close to the nose of an airplane. If you look closely, right as the video starts, you can see the operator of the cart falling out just as the cart loses control.

Initially, as the cart starts spinning, the ground crew tries to approach it, but the speed of the cart goes out of control and keeps getting closer to the nose of the jet.

Finally, one of the ground crew brings in another vehicle and crashes it into the cart, which then topples over and stops rotating. The people sitting at the airport and looking at the incident applaud the crew for saving the day.

In an interview with CNN, Kevin Klauer said, “At first it was humorous to see this drive itself and not fall over, but then as it picked up speed, it presented a danger to people.” He added, “Everyone was actually really quietly watching this unfold. When it ended, the whole gatehouse erupted in applause.”

American Airlines also released a statement that read, “No American Airlines team members were injured and the incident resulted in one 10-minute flight delay. We appreciate the quick action of our team member who stopped the vehicle.”

However, Twitter found the funny in this video and came up with the best jokes and memes. Take a look:
