This is terrifying on so many levels.
Dozens were injured and two people died in an accident at an amusement park over the weekend – all of it captured on video. It took place on the Discovery pendulum ride at the Kankaria Lakefront park in Ahmedabad, India.
As the ride was on an upward swing, a cable snapped, causing the arm swinging section with passengers to break, slamming into the ride’s base. The force of the crash caused the ride itself to fall nearly 20 feet to the ground.
“The ride works when the main shaft with seats at the circular end is counter-balanced by a weight. When the cable snapped, the welding along the shaft came off and the carriage also fell,” an investigator told the Times of India. Two riders tragically lost their lives.
