Two people have been killed and 15 seriously injured in India, following an accident at the Kankaria Adventure Park in Ahmedabad.
The accident occurred when the arm of a spinning pendulum ride snapped, smashing into the ride's structure before falling to the ground.
"The Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) fire department conducted swift disaster response operations," said Vijay Nehra, AMC commissioner.
"The heads of departments of paediatrics, orthopaedics and surgery reported to the hospital and the injured are being treated."
According to statements, a public investigation has been launched to see if the park had a proper license to operate the ride, while its maintenance is also being looked at.
This is the second such incident in the space of a month, after a 19-year-old girl in Uzbekistan was killed in similar circumstances
, when the 'Flying Saucer' pendulum ride's arm snapped at the Istiklol theme park in Jizzakh. Riders fell more than 20ft (6m) to the ground below with seven people injured.
A similar tragedy occurred in July 2017, when 18-year-old Tyler Jarrell died at the Ohio State Fair after being thrown from the Fire Ball spinning pendulum ride, which broke apart while in operation. Following an investigation into the Ohio accident, investigators found corrosion to be the cause. In the UK, a number of rides were shut down by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) for thorough safety inspections following the Ohio accident
