Two Dead And Dozens Injured After Ride Snaps In Half At Theme Park

At least two people have been killed and dozens more injured after a theme park ride snapped in half in India.

 

 

The tragic accident, which saw the Discovery pendulum ride crashing to the ground as it was filled to full capacity, happened at Kankaria Adventure Park in Ahmedabad on Sunday afternoon (July 14).

The main shaft of the ride broke just as it started gaining height and speed, resulting in everyone on board being pulled towards the ground along with the heavy mechanism.
