Amusement Park Ride Crashes to the Ground After Malfunction, Killing Two People and Injuring Dozens

pendulum ride at an amusement park in western India crashed on Sunday, killing at least two young people and injuring 27.

Manali Rajvadi, 24, and Mohammed Zaid Momin, 22, died in the incident at the Amrapali Amusement Park at the Kankaria lake in Ahmedabad, The Times of Indiareported.

The injured park visitors were aged between 16 and 26. Various local reports indicate between three and fourteen were critically injured.

Local chief fire officer, M. F. Dastoor, said it seemed the ride’s load-bearing cable had snapped mid-swing, sending an arm with a carriage carrying dozens of passengers crashing to the ground.

A passerby recorded the moment the pendulum arm detached and fell from the ride. Some people may find the video——upsetting.
